On Friday, May 12, 2017, Santa Barbara Catholic School celebrated the 100th anniversary of the apparition of our Blessed Mother to three simple shepherds in Fatima, Portugal. The special prayer service centered around the praying of the Holy Rosary, which included a meditation on the Paschal Mystery. Also, a video recalling the holy events of May 13, 1917 was shown to the student body, emphasizing the important messages of Our Lady that are still relevant to our church today.

Students offer flowers to our Blessed Mother while students sang the hymn to Our Lady of Fatima during the special prayer service held at SBCS to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the apparition of our Lady in Fatima, Portugal. (Photo provided by SBCS)
