About Our Lady of Fatima

Portuguese Parish

Our Lady of Fatima is the national parish for the Portuguese speaking Catholics of the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Those attending the services at the parish on a regular basis are warmly encouraged to register as parishioners by filling out a form in the office or by contacting the Parish Priest.

Mission Statement

We are members of the Portuguese Parish of Our Lady of Fatima which is administered by the Vancouver Canada Archdiocese. Just like other immigrants who came to this country, we have striven to give our families better living conditions than our ancestors had experienced in Europe.

With all the ambitions we had in mind, there has always been a very strong feeling in our hearts to let our faith in God guide our lives in this new country. Through His Holy Spirit, God encourages us to live a life of faith as a group, thereby forming our community.

We feel that we are called to live this holy mission in order to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in many ways. For example, we continue many traditions like the procession on the streets, as well as the parties in honor of Our Lady of Fatima and of The Holy Christ of Miracles. Clearly, these customs convey strong expressions of faith. Contrary to the secular approach, we still want God to be a priority in our lives.

For us, it is essential to participate in the sacramental life of the church. God has united us in one faith to live as a family that seeks to grow in terms of love and appreciation for each other. In addition, we must be diligent to help the poor and the disadvantaged. The philanthropic cause, it can be said, is one of the strong activities in our community.

Today the Portuguese community no longer feels a strong bond which had existed in the 1980’s and 1990’s. What has caused this unfortunate change? First, exorbitant hosing prices have forced young families to live on the outskirts of Greater Vancouver. Also, immigration from Portugal has diminished considerably. As a result, our community is decreasing instead of increasing. In spite of these challenges, we will continue to honor our mission as faithful disciples, which we received when we were baptized.

Quote of the Day
Matthew 2:4-6

When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.

"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:
'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'"

The power of Christian prayer Come Lord Jesus!
Lord Jesus, master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas. We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day. We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us. We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom. We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence. We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light. To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"
