Xaverian Mission Center – Our Lady of Fatima Shrine
ASH WEDNESDAY at FATIMA SHRINE
The Monthly Pax Christi meeting will be on Friday, March 10th from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Upper Room at the Office building.
How do different Religious Traditions and Churches see Mary? Who is Mary for you? What is the place of Mary in your faith community?
This year we celebrate the centennial celebration of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima where the Blessed Mother is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in 1917 to three shepherd children at the Cova da Iria, in Fátima, Portugal. The three little children were Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto.
* On Sunday, March 19, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., we will spend the afternoon on the Roman Catholic perspective of Mary and her relevance in our faith and the world today. The presenter will be Sister Virginia Fornasa, Marist Missionary Sister. She will present our Catholic understanding of Mary, seen through her missionary witness and experience in a rural Indian village in Fiji among Hindus and Muslims as well as Christians. Register here.
* On Sunday, April 30, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., our friends from the Islamic Center of Framingham, Massachusetts (Masjid-E-Basheer) will join us to share the Muslim devotion to Mary, whom they term, “the most righteous of all women.”* The Orthodox Church and other Protestant friends will be joining us in May through October.
Fatima Days will resume in May and continue until October on the 13th of each month.
