On May 13th we celebrated the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima. On May 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children as they were grazing their sheep in Fatima, Portugal. Their names were Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta. She appeared "brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal goblet filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun." The Virgin Mary identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary. She taught the children to recite the rosary daily, to pray for the conversion of sinners, to make small sacrifices as penance in reparation for sin, and to honor her Immaculate Heart. 

Teach your children to pray the Rosary.

Our Lady of Fatima Pray for us!

Students in 1st grade can join the 2nd grade class, 6th and 8th grades can join the 7th graders, as their teachers will not be here Sunday, or they can join the family at the breakfast event.
