The plaque for the Saint Nicholas of Bari fund is complete and displayed in Our Lady's Chapel at the Fatima Center.
Green Scapular Distribution
Throughout 2002, with your help, we were able to distribute almost 180,000 Green Scapulars worldwide. During the same time, our volunteers helped make over 125,000 Green Scapulars for Our Lady's Apostolate, which we distributed.
Plans are currently underway to set up a Green Scapular Workshop in India where residents of villages near Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Orphanage will make the Scapulars which will be shipped to us for distribution in North America.
Saint Padre Pio Plaque
The Saint Padre Pio Plaque of Recognition which lists the names of those who helped support the Padre Pio House is complete and displayed in the Padre Pio House.
Consecration of Russia
During 2002, we distributed over 229,000 Petitions for the Pope to Consecrate Russia as Our Lady asked at Fatima. With your monthly gifts, we plan to continue spreading these petitions worldwide. If you would like additional copies of this petition, please contact us at 1-800-263-8160.
Many priests have written in to us acknowledging their support of the need for the Pope, together with all the bishops, to consecrate Russia. Throughout 2002, they have said over 3,480 Masses for this request of Our Lady's to be fulfilled.
Chronology of a Cover-Up
During 2002, we distributed over 50,000 copies of the updated English version of Chronology of a Cover-Up. In October, our Fatima office staff, with the help of a few volunteers, did a mailing of the Chronology of a Cover-Up booklet, which was translated into Portuguese. It was mailed to over 5,000 Catholics in Portugal and positive response is starting to come in.
