Experience a special weekend pilgrimage with your family Oct. 13-15, 2017! During this unique event at Catholic Familyland, you’ll enter into the prayers and processions of pilgrims who visit Our Lady’s shrine in Fatima.

Oct. 13, 2017, is exactly 100 years after the “Miracle of the Sun,” which concluded Our Lady of the Rosary’s visits to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal.

As a crowd of 70,000 people watched the sun plummet toward the earth and suddenly return to its place, the three children saw the Holy Family blessing the world. The Holy Family’s appearance reminds us to strive for holiness in our own family life.

AFC co-founder Jerry Coniker commissioned an image depicting the Holy Family’s appearance at Fatima. Later, he personally showed Sr. Lucia this portrait of her vision. She said, “It’s the best that any human being could do.”

What better way to honor the Holy Family and celebrate Fatima’s 100th anniversary than to gather with other families for a time of prayer and thanksgiving?

More information about this event will be available on our website soon!
