Veneration of the Figurine of Our Lady of Fatima
Veneration of the
Figurine of Our Lady of Fatima
From 13th May 2016 till 13th October 2017 the whole Mother Church is celebrating the centenary of the Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal to the three little Children named Lucia, Jacintha and Francesco. In view of this, the blest statue of our Lady of Fatima is taken to different parishes in Mangalore Diocese. This figurine was received with great veneration and devotion by the Parishioners of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Kuppepadavu, along with Rev. Fr. Valerian D’ Souza, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Joy D’ Souza, OFM Capuchin on the eve of 12th March 2017. People of Our Lady of Loretto Church, Loretto, along with the Parish Priest arrived in great number singing praises to God to entrust the Statue. For the next three days people came, honoured, and prayed at different hours of the day. After experiencing a period of grace and blessing, with renewed vigour and zeal the figurine was taken to the Church dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, Bellore on 15th March 2017. ‘Our Lady of Fatima, do intercede for us your children’ is our prayer today and always.
