Spend Time Honoring Our Lady’s Wishes…

The Fatima Pilgrim Statue along with First Class Relics of St. Jacinta and St. Francisco, two of the Fatima Visionaries as well as a piece of wood from the holm oak tree where Mother Mary appeared will be present at St. Sebastian Church, for Mass and Veneration.

The day will begin at 9:00 - 9:45 am with confession, followed by a procession of Our Lady of Fatima statue and the relics into the church with a short presentation from Judy Studer, (statue custodian).  Mass starts at 10:00 AM followed by adoration (11:15 AM) including the rosary using the words of Sr. Lucia (seer).   After the benediction, there will be time for private prayer alongside the relics with Judy. The day’s program will conclude at 2 PM with the blessing of religious items.

All attendees have the opportunity to write their personal prayer petitions which will be sent to the Shrine at Fatima, Portugal.  These private, unread petitions will be prayed for by the religious at the Fatima site and will remain in perpetuity. Please join us in this special and unique opportunity. Rosaries from Fatima will be available for purchase. 

You are invited to spend the entire time or any portion of the scheduled time with us.

Join us at St. Sebastian Church, 155 Washington St. Middletown, CT on October 14, 2023.
