Dear Parents and Teachers,
This is a change in our RETREAT for 1st Communion. We were scheduled to have it on April 23rd from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm at OLF. April 23rd is the date of the Diocesan Pilgrimage to the National Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Because this is a holy year and an extraordinary Year of Mercy parishes are creating a spiritual opportunity for every parishioner. Our Lady of Fatima like Our Lady of Perpetual Help is sending a bus if we can fill it.
Because of this I am moving our RETREAT up a week. It will be April 16th, same time and same place. Please make the correction on your schedules so everyone can participate. Since Father Mulranen is running our bus trip he needs to be present for our event as well. Thank you for understanding. Please e-mail if you have a question or concern. 
Sister Joyce
