Will you spread the message of Fatima to save souls?
The way to turn back to God is the same way that God came to us - through Blessed Mary. Promoting Marian devotion can lead poor souls to conversion, to do God’s will, and to have faith and trust in Jesus. The
To Jesus Through Mary Ministry
seeks parishioners to help souls live the Fatima message. Our Lady clearly gave us remedies to combat the rampant infestation of evil in the world. If you can lead the Rosary prayer after Sunday 8am Mass, or before Saturday or Sunday 5pm Mass, make Rosaries, or help plan Rosary promoting activities, please contact Elsie Coyne
or Elaine Martinez
