In just under a month's time, on Saturday 18th Feb, Cardinal Nichols will receive, bless and crown the WAF National Pilgrim Virgin statue in Westminster Cathedral. Details can be found on the organiser's website: www.worldfatima-englandwales.org.uk/newsletter.html
The Fatima promoting organisation (Secretary in UK: Donal Anthony Foley) has asked contacts to do whatever we can to make known this unique and most important ecclesial event, at the opening of the Fatima Centenary year 2017. The WAF hope that as many people as possible will come, but if unable to attend, please join with us in prayers on the day, and we are hoping it will be broadcast by EWTN UK.
