Fatima Holy Hour

Dear Church Family,

Please plan to attend a Holy Hour in the Lower Church on Sunday, August 13th at 7:00 PM and pray for world peace. This date is the 100th anniversary of the second apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the three shepherd children of Fatima, Portugal. The Holy Hour will provide an opportunity for a plenary indulgence.

Visitation Parish initiated its Fatima celebration on May 13, the anniversary of the first apparition, with a Rosary Rally in the school parking lot. Despite a steady rain, more than fify people prayed fervently for an hour before our Parish Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Please contact Bob Hehn at 484-557-1371 for more Informaton. “Pray the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world…..” - Our Lady of Fatima to Lucia dos Santos, Francisco and Jacinto Marto.
