Welcome to Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Meadowbank!

In 1950, Bishop Liston established Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Meadowbank, Auckland, as the National Shrine of our Lady of Fatima. In 2017 we commemorated the Centennial of the apparition of Mary to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia at Fatima in Portugal in 1917. Pope Francis has said: “Following the example of St. John Paul II, a great devotee of Our Lady of Fatima, let us listen attentively to the Mother of God and ask for peace for the world.” In that spirit, Our Lady of Fatima National Shrine encourages you to visit the National Shrine of Our Lady in New Zealand, offer a Rosary and to pray the Novena prayers.

Please feel free to participate and get involved in the life of the National Shrine. Call the office or send an email at lofatimaparish@gmail.com
