    Now that I leave is when regularly celebrated TLM is offered at Fatima (besudes by the SSPX)? Go figure… It seems that the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate have started a community there. Anyone know anything else about them?

  2. Peter Karl T. Perkins says:

    Someone at Rorate Cœli has posted the address but we still don’t know the time. The first Mass (weekly) was on a Saturday in July, but that could be a Saturday afternoon at or after 4.00 p.m., thereby fulfilling the obligation. Does anyone know the time each week? Here is the address:

    Freis Franciscanos da Imaculada FI,F
    Rua Sao Jose, 14
    Cova da Iria
    2495-434, Fatima

    Yes, I can help with information as I am associated with this beautiful branch of the Franciscans of the Immaculate.

    Websites include

    There are 5 friaries in the US-Our Lady, Queen of the Seraphic Order in New Bedford, MA, Our Lady of Guadalupe in Griswold, CT, Our Lady Coredemprix at The Mother of the Redeemer Retreat center in Bloomington, IN, Our Lady, Spouse of hte Holy Spirit in Maine, NY and now also at Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in LaCross, WI–the new shrine founded by ARchbishop Raymond Burke.

    There are convents in Massachusetts and Indiana in the US for the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate. There is a new foundation of Third Order Sisters and then also the Franciscan Tertiaries of the Immaculate or the Third Order.

    here is a vocation video from the order:

    It is the desire of the founders that all friaries be able to celebrate the extraordinary form of the Mass and, where needed, renovations are under way for that purpose.

    Ave Maria!

  5. ave maria says:

    Rorate Caeli has an article on Fr. Stefano Manelli our Founder celebrating the Tridentine Mass at our chapel in Fatima, Portugal. The extraordinary form of the Mass will be offered once a week at the chapel which is just a five minute walk from the Basillica.

  6. I wonder whether it’s true — as seemed to be implied in a report about the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate being chosen by Ab. Burke to staff the new Our Lady of Gualalupe Shrine in Wisconsin — that all their novice seminarians are learning the TLM.

  7. John says:

    The next step is to re-design the new age expansion project that was pushed through by the Monsignor in charge of the shrine. I believe the new age inspired Monsignor was later relieved after allowing Hindu or syncrestic Hindu-Christian ceremonies to held in the shrine.

  8. Peter Karl T. Perkins says:

    We now know that these Masses are to be celebrated once per week and that the first one was celebrated on a Saturday in July. Presumably, then, they are celebrated every Saturday.

    What we don’t know is whether or not they are celebrated at or after 4.00 p.m., thereby fulfilling the Sunday obligation.

    Can anyone out there answer this question: What times are they celebrated every week?

    TLM in Fatima
    My wife and I spoke with Friar Andre, here in Fatima yesterday, Saturday Nov 15 just before noon. He said that yes there is a TLM at the sisters house at 7pm. Upon returning home we received a call from Brother saying that it is “. . . only a private Mass and that the public could not attend”.
    We will continue to look into this, but, at the moment there is no public TLM in Fatima regardless to what information your receiving.
    When asked about the TLM many of the Bishops and Priests here in Portugal quickly break out in a rash and start to dance.
