This is the fourth annual event co-sponsored by Saints Peter and Paul Church
and the Father Keating Council of the Knights of Columbus.
Father Ladis J. Cizik provided his beautiful statue of Our Lady of Fatima
for the May Crowning. He also provided a picture of the children of Fatima
at the site of one of their apparitions.
He also provided three relics from the clothes of Jacinta, Francisco and
Lucia worn by them during one of the apparitions.
After the event, Father invited those in attendance to bring their rosaries
up the altar to touch the relics. Most of those at the event did so.
This year, Grace Kenney did the crowning. She is a second grader at Saints
Peter and Paul School.
Father Cizik led all of the singing, prayers and provided a very
inspirational homily on the history and the messages of Fatima.
There was exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament after the crowning. The
event concluded with Benediction.
Joe Sayre as in past years, assisted Fr. Cizik at the event.
Despite the inclement weather, we had almost 50 people in attendance.
Eric Whipple’s cousin, Rita, took many great pictures. I have many more if
you would like to see them.
I have attached four with this report.
Fr. Cizik has agreed to host next year’s May Crowning on Sunday, May 20,
The Father Keating Council of the Knights of Columbus will also co-sponsor
next year’s event.
