100 years ago, 3 little children, not old enough to have learned to read or write,
Were tending to their sheep when … a wispy white cloud approached them and Our Lady,
The Virgin Mary, appeared to them atop a small bush during 1917. WE HAVE
This event.

If there is one event in the past 100 years that can have a great influence on all, it is this
Series of “Our Lady of the Rosary” apparitions and the miracle at Fatima that:

1/ proves to believer and unbeliever alike that there is a God
2/ that the Virgin Mary listens to our prayers and works to intercede for us
3/ that this event happened in front of over 70,000 people and is undeniable

 Catholic Scout Retreat
 Scouting Fun Day
Our traditional Catholic Scout Retreat will fulfill the requirements for many Scouting Religious Awards but also explore inspiring topics of our faith.

One of the greatest moments in the history of the world was predicted and witnessed by over 70,000 pilgrims. This is a scene from the movie that tells the story about “The Miracle Of Our Lady Of Fatima.” A very special program planned!!
 The theme of the 2017 Diocesan Scout Summit is centered around the inspirational story of Fatima.   This special 2 piece patch captures the moment where 70,000 souls witnessed a miracle.

Our Staff is seen here preparing for the Living Rosary. Each bead represents a prayer during our Holy Rosary conducted on Saturday evening. Rain was about to visit us so we brought the Holy Rosary indoors and our Staff conducted an inspirational moment for all Scouts.
