Worldwide Children’s Holy Hour set Oct. 8
By Denver Catholic Register
All children are invited to participate with their parents in a Worldwide Children’s Holy Hour set for 10 a.m. Oct. 8 at Sts. Peter and Paul School, 3920 Pierce St. in Wheat Ridge. The celebrant will be Denver Auxiliary Bishop James Conley. The liturgy theme will be “The True Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.”
The holy hour will be offered for all families and priests of the world, organizers said.
The liturgy is sponsored by the local chapter of the World Apostolate of Fatima, a public association of the faithful that promotes devotion to the Fatima message of prayer and penance.
Fatima is one of the best-known apparitions of Mary. She appeared six times between May 13 and Oct. 13, 1917, to three children — Lucia dos Santos, 10; Francisco Marto, 9, and his sister Jacinta, 7 — in a field called Cova da Iria near Fatima.
Mary recommended frequent recitation of the rosary, urged works of mortification for the conversion of sinners, called for devotion to her Immaculate Heart, requested the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, and asked that the faithful make a Communion of reparation on the first Saturday of each month. The apparitions were declared worthy of belief in October 1930.
Miraculous Medals will be distributed at the end of the celebration.
