National Fatima Conference to be held in Cork
The first ever National Fatima Conference to be held in Ireland is scheduled to take place in UCC Cork on 30th October 2010. The conference is being organized by the Call to Fatima group and follows a successful invitation to RTE Nationwide to cover a half hour story of the Pope’s visit to Fatima which was broadcast on 12th May 2010.
The programme generated a renewed interest in the Fatima message and the conference has been organized in response to that call. The conference has the blessing and support of the Bishop of Cork and Ross John Buckley and the theme of the conference will be: “to lead all souls to Heaven” Our Lady of Fatima 1917. Among the speakers and those attending will be Bishop John Buckley, Fr. Michael Maher SM , Dr Branca Paul- Sr Lucia’s private doctor and Sr Angela, Vice-Postulator for the Canonization Cause for Blessed Francisco and Jacinta. There will also be music from Louise Irvine and Cork’s own Nancy Long. Mass will be celebrated at 4.30PM and there will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament throughout the conference. Confession, The Rosary and Brown Scapular enrolment will also take place during the day. The conference is open to all Catholics, including students, religious groups, communities, doctors/ nurses and the organisers hope that many young people will feel encouraged to attend and discover for themselves the message of Fatima. Space will be limited and those interested in attending are advised to apply before the end of July in order to secure a place.
