Students at Fatima are celebrating the 101st anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun.

Students and faculty held an all-day Rosary Rally in front of Our Lady of Fatima Church.

On October 13th in 1917 the Virgin Mary appeared to three children at Fatima, Portugal.

And today, the group continues to fulfill Mary’s wishes to pray for world peace.

“The children’s faces,” Lisa Melancon, Religion Administrator. “They light up when they say their prayers to Jesus and Mary. They know that he walks with them and she walks with them in the struggles of their lives.”
