Schools venerate the icon of Our Lady of Consolation
Our Lady Queen of Heaven and St Francis of Assisi schools from Crawley visited the Parish Church of St Francis and St Anthony to venerate the icon of Our Lady of Consolation. They began the special day, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima, with a Pilgrimage to the Friary. The children led in reading, song and drama. The focus of this special event was to mark the Year of Mercy and it gave the children a chance to place themselves in the presence of God and remember the close ties of Mary to Christ and the Church.
