A drawing by illustrator and graphic designer, Janus Guttesen,

While the adults listened to Jon, Sr. Florence
animated Sunday School for the children.
They learned about the apparitions of Our
Lady of Fatima
to three children in Portugal in 1917.
They also prayed the Rosary (Rósukransurin) for other children
on the five contintents.
"Blessed are the pure in heart..."
It was a busy Sunday! We also welcomed a team of students from
the University of Westminster and a Danish journalist.
