Halloween 2007 In Downtown Fairfax
We usually don't have any trick or treaters up here at the house, so decided I would go downtown early and catch some photos - 100s of kids out with several members of The Fairfax Fire Department keeping the traffic slowed down - Although a number of people called me by name, most I didn't know - Very large crowd of youngsters at the house just above the school on Hunt Street and also at Lee & Louise Minors, but too dark for me to get a good photo - Truly a very nice group of well behaved youngsters out there tonigt and I truly hope they are having a Happy Halloween

Highlight for album: Knights Of Columbus Free Throw Competition Held Saturday, February 10, 2007
Knights Of Columbus Free Throw Competition Held Saturday, February 10, 2007
Each year the Knights Of Columbus has a Free Throw Contest -- Jim Hogan, Grand Knight for Donald C. Kelly 10830 took these photos and would like to express his appreciation for all the help and participation: " I am pleased to announce that Council 10830 had a very good turnout for our Free Throw this past Saturday. The final count on contestants ended up at 33. Due to out of town games that day we did not have any girls from the 10, 11 and 14 year old brackets. This will be rectified next year as we will be in closer contact with the coordinator, Cheryl Veren, of the elementary ages. We do have one shoot out potential at this time, which will be taking place this Saturday at 12:00 in the BFA Elementary gym. I will be in Vergennes attending my daughter Kat's regional cheerleading competition and will need a couple of Knights to replace me on this, please let me know if you are available. I would like to thank the following for their help in making this happen. First of course is my wife Kathy who kept me on task and offered me some great advice to streamline the event. Then there are the rest of ya: the husband and wife team of Justin and Emily Wills, our Treasurer Vince Redding, former GK Mike Theoret, current Trustee Colonel Ed Nuttal, my kids Molly and Chris, Andrew Duprat and Marty Vanzo two of our Confirmation candidates, Andrews' Dad David Duprat, and Dan Bois our District Deputy. As some of you may have noticed Jim Groseclose was absent as he, Jean and Doug were taken out of commission by the stomach bug plaguing the area, keep them in your prayers. Thanks again for all the help on this, I really appreciated that. Jim Hogan"

Highlight for album: Our Lady Of Fatima Statue On Display At St. Luke Church This Week
Our Lady Of Fatima Statue On Display At St. Luke Church This Week
Our Lady of Fatima statue is on display at St. Luke Church for one week - Father Rome took the photos in this photo album. Children learn about her apparition from the following story: Fatima, Portugal " Our Lady of Fatima " The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared 6 times to 3 sheperd children; Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta; between May 13 and October 13, 1917. She came to the little village of Fatima which had remained faithful to the Catholic Church during the recent persecutions by the government. Our Lady came with a message from God to every man, woman, and child of our century. Our Lady of Fatima promised that the whole world would be in peace, and that many souls would go to Heaven if Her requests were listened to and obeyed. She told us that war is a punishment for sin; that God would punish the world for its sins in our time by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and persecution of the Holy Father, the Pope, unless we listened to and obeyed the command of God. At Fatima, Pope John Paul II said on May 13; " the message of Fatima is more relevant and more urgent " then when Our Lady first appeared. The message is an anguished appeal of our Heavenly Mother, Who sees us in great danger and Who comes to offer Her help and advice. Her message is also a prophesy, a clear indication of what was about to transpire in the 20th century, and what is still going to happen infallibly in the near future, depending on our response to Her requests. THE MIRACLE As a great sign of the whole message truly coming from God, a marvelous miracle was worked in the sky above Fatima before 70,000 witnesses on October 13, 1917 at the time, date and place that Lucy and the other two children had prophesised in the name of Our Lady of Fatima. The children were told by Our Lady that God would perform a miracle so that people would believe in the apparitions. The date the children was October 13, 1917, in Fatima. On that date, 70,000 people came to see the phenomenon. The miracle occured with the sun. All could stare perfectly at the sun without blinking, or even hurting heir eyes. While all were watching the sun, it rotated, got large and small, got close to the people, and got far away from them. The sun " danced ". Every single person who was there testified to seeing the sun dance, even non- believers who immediately dropped onto their knees and begged for forgiveness. MIRACLES TODAY Our Lady of Fatima continues to work miracles today through Fatima water which is sent from Fatima, Portugal around the world. This Fatima water sprang up in Fatima at the spot the Bishop told people to dig, very near where Our Lady appeared at the Cova de Iria (the Cove of Peace) in Fatima. The water is known to cure people with sicknesses and poor health. Still, other people are cured when they go on pilgrimage to Fatima, which is about 90 miles north of Lisbon, Portugal. A MESSAGE OF WARNING AND HOPE If we do not heed Our Lady's warnings soon, the Her horrible prophesy may well be realized in the near future, even in our own back yards. She told us that God had chosen to use Russia as the instrument of chastisement to punish the whole world if we did not, by our obedience, prayers, and sacrifices, obtain conversion of Russia to the Catholic faith. She promises us: " If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. " But She also warned us: " If My requests are not granted, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world raising up wars and persecutions against the Church, the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. " She has told us that the whole world (the part surviving) will be enslaved by the atheistic tyrants of Russia.
