2015 Hispanic Community Annual Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima

Every year on the first Saturday of the month of May, the Hispanic community of the Archdiocese of Boston publicly honors the Mother of God at the Shrine of our Lady of Fatima in Holliston, MA. This year about 1,000 people came together to celebrate our Lady on May 2nd. The day started with the procession of the Holy Rosary, followed by the procession of the many faces of Our Lady that are present in Latin America.
