PHOTOS: Fatima’s centennial celebration in New Bedford

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, diocesan faithful gathered in New Bedford at the Madeira Field — the annual site of the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament — for a special outdoor Mass celebration and candlelight procession. Hundreds of people, many of them parishioners from Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Mount Carmel parishes in New Bedford, attended the Liturgy and listened to Father José Eduardo Medeiros, a visiting priest from Winnipeg, Canada, preach on the lasting legacy of the Fatima apparitions.  [Photos by Kenneth J.
