Auxiliary Bishop 

Myron J. Cotta

Unable to travel to Fatima to enjoy the 100 year celebrations? Let Archbishop Cotta take you there.

 

Most of us were unable to attend the celebrations surrounding the place of the miraculous events at Fatima. So, Auxiliary Bishop Myron J. Cotta will recount the details of the pilgrimage he led this fall to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima.  His presentation will include his own pictures of this journey and the shrine in Portugal.
