Participated in by 61 children, the World Apostolate of Fatima (WAF) of the Philippines – Legazpi Chapter conducted the 1st Children’s Apostolate of Fatima (CAF) Pre-Orientation Seminar at the Good Shepherd Hall of the St. Raphael Parish in Legazpi City on September 30.
The WAF leaders led activities that will help the children grow in the virtue of humility, simplicity and love of the Eucharist just like Jacinto, Francisco and Lucia, the three children blessed by the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal.
The children were taught to pray the Holy Rosary and the prayer of the Angel of Peace who also appeared in Fatima. A film showing on the story of Our Lady of Fatima highlighted the seminar while a Holy Mass culminated the activity.
The children participants from barangays Baybay, Pigcale, Dapdap, Gogon, and Bonot were also joined by 12 adults. They are also expected to join their respective communities in praying the Holy Rosary every evening in their barangay chapels.
The WAF hopes that the activity will strengthen Marian devotion and amplify the message of Fatima on the consecration and reparation of sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. (Lilia Natividad)
