Our Pilgrimage to Fatima

In 2016, thanks to a generous benefactor, the Sisters were blessed with the opportunity of going on pilgrimage to Fatima. This past May 13, the anniversary of Our Lady's first apparition, we relived our memories of that wonderful visit. Here are a few photos from our first day at the shrine in Fatima last June. 

Almost immediately upon arriving in Fatima, we went down to the square, where we made our way to the Basilica of the Holy Rosary.

The inside of the church was very crowded, and it was several minutes before we reached the tombs of the three seers. 

Our first visit to the Capelhina, the actual site where Our Lady appeared. The statue is on a pedestal erected over the spot where the holm oak once stood.  

Many of you sent in your petitions along with us, and we laid them at her feet at each of the sacred shrines we visited, remembering you in a special way as we knelt in prayer. We will continue to remember you throughout this Fatima Centennial year, especially on the 13th of each month through October, as we recall Our Lady's apparitions, and more importantly, her requests for amendment of life, prayer, sacrifice and reparation. Please pray for us as well, and especially remember Our Lady's plea for the daily Rosary, for it is the means that will help us live her message in its entirety.

Come see our new store!

We are so pleased to be able to offer you a whole new shopping experience here at MIQ Center. Modern technology is constantly changing, and we've discovered that you can never get too comfortable with one way of doing things. Several weeks ago we learned that our old "store platform," as they call it, would soon be obsolete, so it was time to move to a new one. We were happy to learn that our inventory information from the old store could be simply uploaded into the new store, which would save us hundreds of hours of time.

Our new store is based on Shopify, a popular and highly rated store platform -- and we think you'll like it. We've been working at redesigning the storefront and making necessary changes and adjustments, and are finally at the point where we can open it. Just so you know, this means we will be getting used to a different way of running the web site these first few weeks. However, we do have technical support, so we are confident we'll be able to work through anything that comes up quickly enough.
