Upcoming Events

Summer is flying by so I thought I'd give a quick head's up to two interesting projects coming up in October. One is for October 5, 2007, the Fifth Annual Children's Holy Hour and the second one is October 13th, the TFP Public Square Rosary Campaign.

On First Friday, October 5 ~ 2007, with an
Apostolic Blessing” from Pope Benedict XVI and in honor of the 90th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, ‘Children of the Eucharist,’ an International children’s program of the World Apostolate of Fatima, will be sponsoring the next fifth annual

Worldwide Children’s Holy Program.

Most Reverend Bishop R.William Finn of

Kansas City, Saint Joseph, will lead the Holy Hour LIVE from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.

EWTN will broadcast the event to 140 nations throughout the world, spiritually uniting the prayers of our children and youth around the globe for the families of the world.

On October 13th, join the Public Square Rosary Campaign

Imagine one thousand or more rallies across America in public places. Faithful Catholics carry banners mentioning Our Lady of Fatima and her message. They gather together young and old to pray the rosary. They offer public witness to a message so often ignored.Approaching the 90th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, is it not time to look for supernatural solutions to our nation’s problems? Is it not time for the Fatima message to be proclaimed far and wide? Is it not time for Americans to pray publicly for the future of the nation?

After all, Fatima was directed to a huge public. Fatima’s Miracle of the Sun was one of the most extraordinary and spectacular public miracles in history.
Our Lady appeared at Fatima in 1917 with a message not just for individual Catholics but for the world. She outlined the grave consequences in world events if men did not convert, pray, and do penance: Russia would spread its errors worldwide, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. Many would be martyred, the Holy Father would suffer, and a chastisement would annihilate several nations.

To commemorate the 90th anniversary of Fatima, America Needs Fatima will be promoting “public square” rosary rallies across the nation. The rallies are now starting and will culminate with a thousand or more such events on October 13, the 90th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun.

What does it take to become part of this massive effort? To organize a Public Square Rosary, all that is needed is a few friends, a Rosary, and confidence in the Blessed Mother. Any public square, busy intersection or community park will serve as a place. America Needs Fatima has set up a special center to assist you in all your needs.
