IMMACULATE HEART OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA STATUE
On Thursday, October 27th, the World Apostolate of Fatima is bringing to Sandusky Central Catholic School and St. Mary's Parish, the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima Statue. This beautiful Image of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima was blessed by Pope Francis in October 2013 for the purpose of spreading the important message of Fatima to the United States. 
It is a message Pope John Paul II said is more important today than ever. All are invited and encouraged to come see this beautiful Statue of Our Lady of Fatima and learn Our Lady's message for obtaining peace and putting an end to abortion and the moral corruption that is afflicting our country today.
 
The statue will be at Sandusky Central Catholic School's All Saints Chapel from 8:00am-3:00pm, and then taken over to St. Mary's Church from 4:00pm-7:00pm, with a closing prayer service from 6:00-7:00pm.
