Centennial Gift
2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima apparitions. The celebration actually commences on the first day of Spring in 2016, however, because that day marks the first of the three apparitions of the Angel of Peace which occurred in 1916 to prepare the shepherd children for Our Lady’s apparitions. The World Apostolate of Fatima U.S.A. invites you to participate in its “Centennial Gift to Our Lady.” You can learn more about this gift and register your participation in it by clicking here: Centennial Gift.
Please tell your relatives and friends about this important initiative as well.
