Traveling Virgin Mary of Fatima
Our Traveling Virgin Mary of Fatima would love to visit your home. The Traveling Virgin Mary of Fatima is a Stewardship of Prayer opportunity for your family and home. This will enhance your faith life by giving the opportunity for family prayer and a deepened devotion to Mary. The emphasis of the Traveling Virgin Mary of Fatima Ministry is prayer for fallen away Catholics to return to a full life in the Catholic Church. Prayer suggestions for the week include family daily Rosary and private devotions. A basket will accompany the statue and will include rosaries, a binder with instructions on how to pray the Rosary, a DVD with the story of Our Lady of Fatima along with coloring books and stories for children.
Obtaining the statue is easy. The family that has the statue will call the next family and make arrangements to deliver the statue to them. A copy of the schedule will be in the basket.

First Friday Adoration
Every First Friday of the month a 24-hour adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place in the Chapel. Adoration starts after 8:15 AM Mass on First Friday and closes on Saturday morning with Benediction before the 8:15am Mass. It is a beautiful devotion to our Blessed Sacrament. All parishioners are invited to spend some quiet time with our Lord. A reminder board is posted in the Narthex the week prior to Adoration.

Rosary for Healing
The Rosary for Healing is a parish effort by individuals who gather in the Chapel once a month to pray the Rosary for healings. Before the Rosary begins a spontaneous prayer for our intentions is made, then each person presents to Jesus through Our Lady’s intercession the names of those for whom we pray the five decades of the Holy Rosary. A different person leads the Rosary each month. The Rosary is open to any and all; prayer requests for healing are welcome. Prayer requests can be submitted to the Parish Office at 853-7468. Rosary for Healing begins at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month in the Chapel.
