Procession to the Grotto on Fatima Day

Our Lady of Fatima is just one of the many names given to the Blessed Virgin Mary. On the 13th day of each month, a pilgrimage takes place at Penrose Park to the Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy in honour of Our Lady of Fatima, remembering that she appeared to the three children in 1917 every month from the 13th of May till the 13th of October. The feast day of our Lady of Fatima is May 13th.

We would like to emphasize that the Shrine and the Pauline Fathers promote the Catholic doctrine regarding the Blessed Virgin Mary. Hence we do not endorse any “private apparitions” not approved by the Holy See.

  • No goods or religious objects, or literature may be given or sold at “Penrose Park” without the express written permission of the Pauline Fathers.
  • We continue to ask you not to look at the sun as this causes eye damage and confusion among the faithful.
  • Due to the high cost of waste disposal, we would like to ask you, if it is possible, to take your rubbish with you. Thank you.
