Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Hedwig’s Church.
This year, in the Catholic Church across the whole world, we celebrate the Jubilee of 100 years of the Fatima apparitions. Several months ago, when someone began to write about the Fatima Jubilee, I thought about our tiny Fatima garden with the most beautiful Madonna and
shepherds, Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia. I realized that 5 years ago, when we began the project of the renewal of the entire garden, nobody thought about the approaching 100th Anniversary of the apparitions. After several weeks of hard work the statue of Our Lady stood
on its new foundation and all became simultaneously renewed. Together with the new design everything turned into a beautiful garden. Now I realized that our preparations for the 100th Jubilee of Fatima had started 5 years ago. Is this not a gift of the Holy Spirit who inspired us
through the whole renovation project 5 years ago?
Today, I thank you all for the financial support and generosity, I want to invite you all to the 100th Jubilee of Our Lady of Fatima which will begin in our church on Saturday, May 13 at 5:00pm. We will celebrate Holy Mass and then pass processionally to the Fatima Garden for the
Your Pastor, Peter
