The Delaware County parish hosted the Centennial Image of Our Lady of Fatima, and the accompanying pilgrimage team, on Friday, June 16. A procession of faithful honoring Our Lady of Fatima preceded the 8:30 a.m. Mass and day-long devotions.
Father Alan Okon, pastor of St. Francis de Sales, consecrated the parish to the Blessed Mother while parishioners did the same for themselves and their families. Following a morning of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the church, Father Okon and the pilgrimage team carried an image of Our Lady of Fatima to four local nursing homes where devotions were prayed with the residents.
