The prophetic message of Fatima is more relevant today than ever. Our informative content serves to aid you as you answer Our Lady’s call. Will you take the initiative?
Inspired by the message of Our Lady of Fatima, Msgr. Harold V. Colgan and John M. Haffert founded the Blue Army of Our Lady, now the World Apostolate of Fatima, in 1947.
Haffert enlisted the help of Sr. Lucia, the last surviving Fatima visionary, to understand Mary’s requests to establish peace in the world and spread the devotion to her Immaculate Heart.
Today we are the Vatican’s official voice in proclaiming the authentic message of Our Lady of Fatima.
… in union with the National Eucharistic Revival, to pray for the return of Catholics to the Faith and to belief in the Real Presence.
We invite you to present your prayer requests for remembrance during Masses offered in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at the National Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima. Your prayers are also remembered during our Holy Hours of Adoration.
In 1917, the Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children in a small village in Portugal with a plan for bringing hope and peace to a world that was tearing itself apart. Today that message is as relevant as it was 100 years ago.
Help us spread Mary’s beautiful message of peace and hope for mankind. Your generosity furthers the mission of the World Apostolate of Fatima, to help souls learn, live and spread Our Lady of Fatima’s message.
Join us at the National Blue Army Shrine for our May 13 Mary-thon Event!
