OVER 200 parishioners from Queanbeyan participated in a Rosary rally and Marian procession in anticipation of the 100 year anniversary of the final apparition at Fatima. Hosted by the Missionary of Charity sisters, parishioners participated in an hour-long procession throughout the streets of Queanbeyan promoting devotion to Our Lady of Fatima while carrying her statue and praying twenty decades of the Rosary in twenty different languages. The procession culminated with a Mass at St Raphael’s church where parishioners began a thirty-three day novena for Total Consecration To Jesus through Mary.
