A statue of Our Lady of Fatima, which was blessed in the sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal on the 14th May 2015, will visit our cathedral on Saturday 23rd July. The pilgrimage is in preparation for the 100th anniversary celebrations of the appearing of Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal. A welcome celebration will begin at 5.00pm followed by Holy Mass at 5.30pm. Immediately after Mass there will be a short time of exposition of the Blessed Sacrament which will be followed by a blessing of the sick. We will then have a candlelit procession during which the rosary will be recited. On Sunday the 24th July, the statue of Our Lady will be present at the 9.30am Mass, after which the rosary will be recited.
