Our Lady of Fatima centennial celebrated with local rosary

By Christine Bordelon

Approximately 100 people prayed the Joyful Mysteries of the rosary Oct. 14 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, Portugal. The prayer site was a lot on Elysian Fields Avenue at Lafreniere Street in New Orleans.

The annual rosary, coordinated by Joycelyn Clementin and others, featured children participating in a procession to bring flowers to and crown Mary.

Josephite Father David Begany of Corpus Christi-Epiphany Parish blessed the statues of Mary on several tables and all those who came out.
