The Fatima Shrine Boston is dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima, and is situated on a hill between Monastery Road and Washington St. in Brighton MA. It was built back in the late 1960’s by the Crusaders of Fatima with the sole purpose of fulfilling Our Lady’s request at Fatima Portugal in 1917 to establish devotion to Her Immaculate Heart in the world. For over fifty years crowds of pilgrims have been coming to the shrine from all over the greater Boston area and beyond. Many of them come for the devotional services, like the First Saturdays of each Month or the Candlelight procession on the 13th of each month from May through October, as a response to Our Lady when She asked the three shepherd children to return; “I want you to come here on the thirteenth of next month, for six consecutive months & pray the Rosary every day.” (Our Lady of Fatima May 13, 1917)

The Shrine and the grounds around it have become a destination to many who come to spend time in the peaceful presence that you find walking the rosary walk, or following the stations, or praying in front of the passionist cemetery that is guarded by a beautiful statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Others like walking among the giant beech trees or among the tall pines that separate you from the busy Boston street in a park-like environment. Many neighbors describe their visit as a transition from streetscape into an oasis of peace with garden-like scenery which has a healing effect.

The shrine is opened daily from dawn until dusk and among likely visitors you might find a nurse or doctor from the nearby St. Elizabeth’s hospital spending part of their lunchtime just to sit and pray. There are still many more who come to pay a visit before or after work.

If you happen to be around on the weekends, every Sunday at 3 pm in the shrine a number of guest gather to recite the “

Rosary for Peace” not only praying for peace in the world, but also for the many request that people send into the shrine as prayer petitions, asking the prayers of loved ones or friends. All are welcomed.
