The Celebration of the Eucharist in the Shrine of Fatima
In the Shrine of Fatima, the Mass is celebrated every day in different hours and places. In these Eucharistic celebrations, the Shrine of Fatima remembers always the intentions of all pilgrims who physically or spiritually travel to this place. In addition to these celebrations, others are regularly celebrated as well as other celebrations specifically solicited by the pilgrims.
The official and regular intentions of the Shrine are the following:
- For the Holy Father (every day, at 11:00 am);
- For the associates of the Message of Fatima Movement (every day);
- For the benefactors of the Shrine of Fatima (on the 13th, at 3:00 pm).
The intentions of all of the pilgrims who visit the Shrine of Fatima are remembered daily during the different celebrations of the Mass. Nevertheless, those who wish to have a Mass offered for a specific intention may request it, either in person or by email at [email protected]. The price is 10 Euro. The shrine will issue a receipt for the offering.
Due to the large number of requests, the intentions cannot be publicly announced during the Masses. It is also not possible to give the precise date when each intention will be included in the celebration.
