Our Lady of Fatima 90th Anniversary

Saturday, October 13th was the 90th Anniversary of the last apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, the Miracle of the Sun.

The girls and I went down to our parish for a lovely grace-filled morning. (The men of the family unfortunately had field work.) The girls are here ready to go in their white. They were going to be four of the many girls in the Procession.

The altar boys lead the procession.

Followed by a whole slew of girls beautifully dressed in white carrying baskets with rose petals to scatter beneath the feet of the diocesian Pilgrim Virgin Statue. Here are Rosie and Eleanor.

Galadriel and Eowyn.

The lovely statue was carried behind the lovely little ladies.

Following the Holy Hour and Procession was a lovely Traditional Latin High Mass. The choir was lovely!

It really was a lovely day!


  1. The girls were so lovely! I love the white dresses. Upon seeing them Lydia started signing, "Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes..." from "My Favorite Things" in the Sound of Music.

  2. How beautiful! Did you make the girls' dresses, Julie?
