Blue Army



The Blue Army is open to all adults of the parish.  It has been in existence in our parish since June 1973.  This organization, also known as the World Apostolate of Fatima, is active in over one hundred countries and its membership numbers in the millions.


Our group meets each Monday at 2:00 P.M. in the parish center for an hour of prayer.  The members renew pledges; recite the Scriptural Rosary, and Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  In the prayers, they also include the special intentions of those who ask for prayers.
