One Hundred-one years ago, on October 13th, Our Lady of Fatima performed a miracle witnessed by over 70,000 people, believers and unbelievers alike; it was the Miracle of the Sun.
Join us as we offer a Rosary and Marian songs to celebrate this 101st anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun that happened in Fatima (1917).
We are inviting parishioners from every San Diego parish to come together to create a visible presence of our faith in God and our devotion to Our Lady as our country navigates through these tumultuous times.
With faith and devotion, we offer these prayers in reparation for sins and offenses committed against Our Lord and Our Lady’s Immaculate Hearts.
We will gather at 11:30am and begin promptly at noon with the Angelus to honor Our Lady as God’s Messenger and as the Queen of Heaven.
Our notable Catholic presence at Balboa Park expresses not only devotion to Our Lady, but also the confidence and courage imparted by our faith.
After the Rosary, there will be a picnic social for those who wish to join us.
We encourage all to come with friends and bring lunch …and a friend!! Choose your own sunny or shady location to enjoy the afternoon; there are plenty of shade trees and lawns.
Remember chairs, tables, or pop-up canopies for enjoying this delightful venue while celebrating Our Lady’s power and promises.
There will be a Pro-Life / Pro Traditional Family exhibit with information, literature, and free rosaries for all who are interested.
Look for the Vatican and American flags!!
We will be located near the entrance of the park on President's Way

"The challenge facing you, dear friends, is to increase people's awareness of the importance for society of religious freedom; to defend that freedom against those who would take religion out of the public domain and establish secularism as America's official faith."
