100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima
Our Lady appeared at Fatima from May 13th - October 13th 1917. Announcements will be made regarding some special devotions that will take place in our Church to mark this centenary observance. The Holy Father has granted a Plenary Indulgence to those who would "Make a visit to an image or statue of Our Lady of Fatima that is on display for public veneration in any Church, Oratory, or 'adequate place' on the anniversary days of the apparitions (the 13th of each month from May - October 2017) and 'devotedly participate' in prayer or celebration in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, pray the 'Our Father' and the 'Creed' and invoke Our Lady of Fatima".
The Gift of Bread
The Gift of Bread is an external apostolate that a few members of the MHM parish are involved in to provide bread for large families and the poor.
The Gift of Bread is looking for drivers who would be able to collect bread from the bakeries at Marickville for packing and distribution.
