Are you suffering a great deal? Don’t lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.” – Our Lady of Fatima’s words to Lucia

All are invited to join us for the May Crowning at Our Lady of Solitude Chapel, directly after the 9 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 14, 2017.  All children are invited to bring flowers for Our Lady. 

This year we will be unveiling (and using for the crowning) a newly hand-carved statue of Our Lady of Fatima, in honor of the Centenary celebration!  The beautiful statue was carved by Alexander Kostner – the Italian sculptor who carved the other statues, altar, crucifix etc for Our Lady of Solitude Chapel.

This special Our Lady of Fatima statue will be exposed for public veneration in the Sanctuary at Our Lady of Solitude Chapel from May 13th through October 13th.  A special indulgence may be obtained on the Apparition Anniversaries (13th of each month from May through October 2017).  We invite all those who would like to obtain the indulgence to join us for Holy Mass on those special days (Monday through Saturday – Daily Mass is at 8 a.m.  Sunday Mass is at 9 a.m.  See Mass Calendar for any exceptions).  For additional information about the Centenary Indulgence, follow the link below.
