Parish Mission Statement

We, the people of Our Lady of Fatima Parish recognize we have been called together by the grace of God to experience His presence and loving mercy in our lives and to share it with others. We have been called by the eternal Father to hear the Gospel and to proclaim to others the good news of salvation,

to celebrate the mysteries of Christ’s saving love in the sacred liturgy, and to put that love into action through our individual and united efforts of service to one another and the community around us.

Aware of the gifts the Holy Spirit has given to each of us in Baptism, we encourage all members of our family to use their particular gifts in building our community of faith, love and service.

We proclaim our faith in the unity of our Catholic communion, with Francis, Bishop of Rome, and Francis, Bishop of Wilmington, and in fellowship with our brothers and sister of other Christian Communities.

We seek to promote the continued renewal of the Church according to the spirit and decrees of the Second Vatican Council. As we wait and work for the Lord who is to come again in glory, we live and pray under the patronage and the example of Mary, Our Lady of Fatima, who heard the Word of God and kept it, who welcomed Christ into her life and shared Him with our world.
