Last June 17, the Claretian family celebrated the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Some parishes of our Province of Fatima commemorated this feast in a special way:
St. Anthony Mary Claret Parish of Seville (Spain). The Parish celebrated a Novena during the previous days, which ended with a procession through the streets of the neighbourhood with the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Saturday 17th June. This year, the image of the Virgin was in a special way, as her statue has been fully restored by Professor Pedro Manzano.
Our Lady of Carmen Parish Church in Malaga (Spain). Under the motto “Close to Mary” the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary was celebrated with a feast and Eucharist of thanksgiving for the end of the pastoral year. It was a moment to present the work of the year before the heart of Mary and the Father, giving thanks for so much good. In addition, a special mention was given to the volunteer Juan Ros, who has been working for more than 30 years in the parish office and in the parish.
Heart of Mary Parish of Las Palmas (Spain). Celebrated a Novena in honour of the Heart of Mary. Each day, the Eucharistic celebration was presided by a Claretian missionary of the community, who was in charge of animating the celebration for the parishioners.
We give thanks for so much Grace!
