Next weekend, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September, as part of the preparations for the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue and relics of Ss. Francisco and Jacinta will be visiting St Mary’s Cathedral, Newcastle. The event has been organised by the World Apostolate of Fatima (WAF).
Over the weekend there will be time to find out more about the work of WAF as well as the opportunity to spend time in prayer and to venerate the relics. A concelebrated Mass will take place at 12noon on Saturday 16th September where the Statue and Relics will be welcomed and the Diocese consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
