Father Shroff, the Parish Priest at The Good Shepherd Parish in Ottawa started the event by crowning a statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Mark from "Canada Needs Our Lady" gave a talk on the apparitions at Fatima and this was followed by a 30 minute video describing the events that took place in the small town of Fatima in Portugal from the 13th May through to the 13th October 1917. Father Shroff led us in praying the Rosary and the Litany of Lorretto. Participants completed prayer requests that will be taken to Fatima in 2017. To finish the day, we sang the hymn Immaculate Mary. There were about 50 people who attended this beautiful afternoon at The Good Shepherd Parish.

I planned on praying at the abortion site yesterday for a while before the mid-point rally at seven.
When I arrived around 5:30 pm I was surprised and happy to see so many young people praying the rosary and singing beautiful hymns, and I took a few photos and short videos.
This joyful group are the students of Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy in Barry's Bay Ontario
God's goodness abounds!
