It's been 100 years since Our Lady of the Rosary appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal and the history of the world has been forever changed because of her exhortation to prayer, trust and reparation.  Join Deacon Jim Olshefski for a series of Fatima presentations as we celebrate the summer apparitions.  Each of the talks will disclose the message of Fatima presented to the children during the summer of 1917.

Join our AFF Team and take part in the New Evangelization...

“Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort.  Indeed, those who enjoy life most are those who leave security on the shore and become  excited by the mission of communicating life to others.  Thus, the Church summons all Christians to take up the task of evangelization…”  (Pope Francis)
