In 1950, Bishop Liston established the Catholic Church of Meadowbank as the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima. From 1950 to 1970’s there were many Marrian Festivals that were celebrated here in Meadowbank. At Our Lady of Fatima we hold Rosary, Novena Prayer and Mass every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm. 

In May we celebrate the Marian Festival by reciting the Rosary and Novena followed by Mass and a procession for nine days prior to the Date of the Festival.  The Marian Festival coincides with the first apparition of Our Lady to Jacinta, Lucia and Francisco in Fatima, Portugal.

We encourage you visit the National Shrine to pay homage to the Mother of Our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Please feel free to participate and get involved in the life of the National Shrine. For more information please email lofatimaparish@gmail.com.

God Bless

If you are thinking that God is calling you to serve Him in the Sacred Orders,  pray and discern this calling that is nagging at you. A practical advice to discern is to:

Pray and attend Mass as frequent as you can.

 

Sacrament of Matrimony (wedding/marriage) is a wonderful gift of God to a couple who are discerning to be faithful to each other and willing to give each other their total commitment and fidelity. The couple could celebrate this in a Sacred Ritual given by the church. Please email lofatimaparish@gmail.com for further information.

Please provide you baptism and confirmation certificate

 

The Mass of Christian Burial is the primary celebration of the funeral rites. This Mass celebrates our belief, as Christians, that death is a passage to a new life and, ultimately, to resurrection and eternal union with God. The resurrection is the theme that is reflected in the readings, the hymns and prayers.
