Contest for Children in Pre-K4 through 3rd Grade
Applicants will be judged based on neatness and resemblance of Mary's appearance as she is shown in traditional images of Our Lady of Fatima. We encourage parents to guide children by looking up images of Our Lady of Fatima online, learning a bit about the apparitions, and making the experience of coloring this page a prayerful experience.
Please turn coloring pages in no later than Sunday, April 30, at the church office, the collection basket (in an envelope marked Religious Education), or when you attend Faith Formation.
