Dear Fathers/Brothers/Sisters,

The message and miracle of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917 is one of the greatest events in the world. It's probably the greatest miracle in Catholic history outside the Resurrection of Jesus. Mary’s call for conversion began with her apparition on 13th May, 1917. And as we all know this year marks the 100th Year.

The preparations for the celebrations began when the Holy Father declared the Jubilee Year, which started from November 27, 2016 to November 26th 2017. The plenary indulgences for the jubilee are also announced by him.

This year on the 13th of May we celebrate the 100th year of this great historical event. Being the diocesan centre for World Apostolate of Fatima we take great pleasure in inviting you to the celebration. It is celebrated all over the world. We also wish to extend this invitation to all your parishioners. The programme for the day will be as follows:

The programme will begin at 11 a.m. and end by 4.00 p.m. on 13th May 2017

  1. Eucharistic celebration in honour of Our Lady of Fatima presided by Msgr. Simon Tellis, Vicar General of the diocese at 11.00 a.m. followed by serving of meals to all.

  2. Receiving the statue of the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima from Bishop at Molkod Bridge, after lunch

  3. Procession to the church with the recitation of the Rosary and Marian hymns

  4. Holy Hour of Reparation,

  5. Consecretion of the of the diocese by the Bishop to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

  6. Honoring the Children of Fatima: Jacinta and Francis, being canonised today at Fatima by Pope Francis, the youngest non-martyred saints.

  7. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

You are cordially invited to participate in this celebration. We also wish to extend this invitation to all your parishioners.

With prayerful greetings of the Easter Season,

Sincerely Yours in Jesus & Mary

History
The island of Molkod has been an abode of Jains and the Catholics, who live here for the past 200 years. A huge cross was erected by the Catholics on the bank of the river Sharavati, as a sign of their faith in the crucified Lord. There was no other place of worship for them. This Cross becomes the only rallying point for the people to come together in prayer and give expression to their Catholic faith. Gathering around this Cross in prayer they were able to keep their faith alive. Every time they came together, they recited the Rosary. They also celebrated every year the annual feast, on January 2nd. There was no possibility of celebrating the Mass on this day and they had to contend with the recitation of the Rosary.

The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima:
The People of Molkod take great pride in the fact that the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima which is in the present Church is a gift from the Patriarch of Goa,Deo Thonio Manuel Rebiero Viera de Castro in 1934. He was on his pastoral visit from Honavar to Samsi in the company of the Honavar Parish Priest, Fr.R.R.Gomes. The Patriarch was moved to see the people of Molkod village lined up in great numbers on the bank of the river. He insisted in paying a visit to the village and behold he was much impressed to see simple hearted and humble people. He promised to send a statue of Our Lady of Fatima, which he eventually sent on his return to Portugal.
