On August 9th, at Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Parish in Waltham, The Society for the Propagation of the Faith will host a private, benefit, screening of the new movie "Fatima". Thanks to the generosity of PictureHouse and AWE, Inc., we will have a fantastic contact-free drive-in movie evening!
As attendees arrive, they'll be treated to the "Blue Carpet" treatment -- blue for the Blessed Mother -- and have their pictures taken by a photo booth as a souvenir of the evening. Pictures will be texted directly to the person who registered their car at www.propfaithboston.org! We are asking for a $50 gift to the missions to attend this benefit screening.
Parking will be pre-planned for the viewing comfort of all. Gift baskets for movie-goers will include pre-sealed snack and water, "Fatima" movie swag, and World Mission Rosaries.
This night has already been a great success in other cities!
To further enhance our Fatima experience, the good people at Marian Pilgrimages have donated a 2021 pilgrimage for two to Fatima and Lourdes for us to raffle off! The all-inclusive trip to two of our faith's holiest sites is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the beauty of these apparition sites. This journey will help you understand what Mary asks of us as faith-filled people.
Valued at over $6,200, the trip includes airfare, accommodations, three meals a day, a guide, driver, and even tips! This allows you to sit back, prayerfully enjoy the sites, and perhaps learn more about God's call to you. Go to www.propfaithboston.org for raffle tickets. The winner does not need to be in attendance at the movie!
At the Propagation of the Faith, we are very grateful to all the organizations who have partnered with us to give people the opportunity to learn more about Fatima (and Lourdes, too!) and Mary's message of peace, especially through praying the rosary. Our Lady inspires us to pray for the world using the World Mission Rosary. Each decade represents a different populated continent of our planet -- all in need of the Gospel message.
Now more than ever, we need to pray for peace -- in our homes, our workplaces, our country, and our world.
Join us on August 9th and learn more about the message of Our Lady, at "Fatima", the movie. Enter to win your pilgrimage to Fatima and Lourdes and experience a deeper understanding of Mary's call for all of us to be witnesses to her Son's message -- even to the ends of the earth.
