|The Three Children:|
Jacinta, Lucia and Francisco
In the midst of the horrors of the First World War three Portuguese children who were shepherds had a vision of Our Lady in 1917.
The Shrine of Fatima is a place of pilgrimage, which celebrates the memory of its founding event, the apparitions of Our Lady to the three little Shepherds. The pilgrim’s pastoral hospitality is a key element to its mission.
The Shrine of Fatima keeps the memory of the event and the message of Fatima. It has the mission of studying and diffusing this message, worked as a means of evangelisation in Portugal and worldwide.
