Our Lady of Fatima Vespers

In honor of this milestone anniversary, Pope Francis has decreed that “the pious faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October (2017), and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary,” may receive a plenary indulgence for themselves or for a deceased loved one.

As a result, we will display a statue of Our Lady of Fatima from Portugal all day in Christ the King Church on every 13th of the month between May and October. Moreover, all are invited to attend solemn, chanted Evening Prayer from the Commons of the Blessed Mother every 13th of the month at 7 p.m. in Christ the King Church.
