Visit to Pluscarden of the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, and Novena of Prayer for Vocation, 11 - 19 June 2017.
The Scottish Pilgrim Fatima statue was donated by Margaret Docherty, and blessed in Fatima. It will go to every Catholic Cathedral in Scotland during this Centenary Year. It will be at Pluscarden for the 9 days from Sunday 11 - Monday 19 June. On Tuesday 13 June, centenary of the second Apparition, a special Plenary Indulgence, proclaimed by Pope Francis, will be available:
"To the faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima."
Our devotional celebration on Tuesday 13 June will take place at 12.00 noon.
The Statue will be placed in our Transept, and candles will be available for lighting before it.
The community wish to invite all our friends to join us in making a novena of prayer to Our Lady of Fatima, during these days of grace, especially for the intention of vocations.
