Welcome to St Mark’s United Methodist Church, a place where faith and community come together. Join us for an unforgettable event - Fatima 2017. In this year, we commemorate the blessings and miracles of Our Lady of Fatima. This page will provide you with comprehensive information about the event, its significance, and how you can actively participate in enhancing your spiritual journey.
Fatima holds a special place in Catholic beliefs and traditions. It refers to the Marian apparitions that occurred in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. Three shepherd children, Lucia Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto, reported seeing the Virgin Mary, known as Our Lady of Fatima. These apparitions brought messages of peace, repentance, and the importance of prayer, making Fatima a symbol of hope and devotion for millions of people worldwide.
The Messages of Fatima
During the apparitions, Our Lady of Fatima shared several messages with the children, emphasizing the need for prayer, conversion, and devotion. These messages included a request for the daily recitation of the Rosary, the importance of repentance and penance, and a call for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
