News: I have some exciting news about a special event coming up this month. On the 13th of July we will co-host a special Rosary Eucharistic Procession. This event will be in solidarity with the Eucharistic Revival presented by the Catholic Conference of Bishops in union with The First National Eucharistic Congress in 83 Years taking place in Indiana on the17th-21st of this month.  These events will mark a pivotal moment in both American history and in the legacy of the Catholic Church. They are expecting tens of thousands of pilgrims to this event. We hope to get hundreds. Our event on Saturday the 13th will begin at St. Columbkille’s parish on 321 Market St. in Brighton less than a mile away from the Shrine. The Priest will give a short talk starting at 6:30 pm. We will then process from the upper church with the  Eucharist up Market St. and down Washington St. to the Shrine grounds. We will end with benediction at the Fatima Shrine. We will pray the Rosary, sing hymns both Eucharistic and Marian on the way. The Crusaders of Fatima are again joining forces with the Spanish Community at St. Columbkill’s in organizing this event. We would like to  have as many people as possible to join us. The 13th of July we also commemorate the third apparition of Our Lady at Fatima to the three shepherd children. The July apparition is when she revealed to the children in a vision what has become known as the three secrets of Fatima. Whenever Our lady would appear to the children there were at least two requests She would alway make;  Sr. Lucia would begin by saying to Our Lady: “What is it that you want from us?” Our Lady would always respond by saying “I want you to come here on the 13th of next month and pray the rosary everyday”. Let us adhere to Our Lady’s request and join with our brothers and sisters in the church to come and join our procession in honoring Our Lord as Christ the King in the Eucharist.
