During the 2023 Fatima season, the Fatima Pilgrimage Masses will take place at 7:00pm (Mass will be at 8pm if the 13th falls on a Sunday)

On the thirteenth day of each month from May through October, a special remembrance of Our Lady of Fatima begins with Mass at 7:00pm. (Mass will be at 8pm if the 13th falls on a Sunday.) Following the Mass, there is an outdoor rosary procession around the shrine, which concludes with Eucharistic benediction and blessing.

In 1917, Mary appeared on those days to three children in Fatima, Portugal, and invited all the world to pray for peace. This pilgrimage reproduces the identical ceremonies celebrated at Fatima with a candlelight rosary procession and blessing of the sick.
