HOME (BY) NOW

GET HOME TO OUR LADY OF FATIMA. RETURN, SAVOR, NOURISH, AND TREASURE OUR CHURCH.

 

A wonderful exchange of God's graciousness and man's humble offering of his work is what we carry in the celebration of our thanksgiving and recognition of the abiding presence of the Almighty.

We are filled with gratitude for a very short period of time of four years to be exact, to complete the projects we envisioned some years ago. We were able to construct a very dignified house of worship with mosaic designs of the Trinity and framed with wood of centuries old, the adoration chapel and the bell tower to call us all to worship every time we hear its tolling, and the last phase, the chapel of the Santo Entierro, the day care room for our nursery pupils, the stage for events and activities that need to be celebrated and the mortuary where we could lay our beloved dead close enough to where he/she was brought forth when he/she received the sacrament of Baptism.

Every piece, every brick put together is a testimony on how generosity and confident faith in the Almighty can fix the concrete expression of our way of believing.

Thank you so much for making all of these hassle-free, accident-free, and smoothly done because we dreamed together, worked together and now celebrating together. May we continuously grow in our struggles and endeavors to attain such holiness that God is entrusting to each of us.
