Bishop John O. Barres Pastoral Letter on the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima
As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance in Fatima, I ask every Catholic of every age in the Church of Rockville Centre to pray the rosary daily during the month of May 2017 in honor of Our Lady of Fatima and for the promotion of dramatic missionary growth on Long Island. As we rediscover or discover the 1917 Miracle of Our Lady’s Apparitions in Fatima, it is an historical moment and opportunity to rekindle our devotion to Mary in 2017.
