Show your love for your Mother at Fatima procession

By Jordan Grantham, 2 May 2017
Pope Francis canonised Blessed Jacinta Marto and Blessed Francisco Marto, on May 13 in Portugal.

Come celebrate 100 years since the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima with a huge procession from Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral, Harris Park to St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parramatta.

The celebration is on Saturday 13 May 2017, coinciding with Pope Francis’ visit to Fatima, Portugal and the canonisation of Francisco and Jacinta, two of the children to whom the Mother of God appeared that fateful day in rural Portugal.

Pope Francis has a strong devotion to Our Lady of Fatima and was reported to be a frequent visitor to a shrine to Our Lady of Fatima in Buenos Aires.

The Feast and Procession are the day before Mother’s Day in Australia. Families are encouraged to bring their mothers to celebrate the greatest Mother of all time.
