Archbishop Charles Chaput observed the 100th anniversary of the first apparition to three children in Fatima, Portugal with his visit to Our Lady of Fatima Church, Secane, on Sunday, May 14. He was the principal celebrant and homilist of the Mass that was concelebrated by other priests in the Delaware County area, including Our Lady of Fatima’s pastor, Father Francis Mulranen. He had celebrated a special Mass the previous day for children receiving their first holy Communion on the actual day of the centenary observance, May 13. (Photos by Don Otto)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
