St. Mary of the Lake Feast Day
Today we celebrate the Feast of St. Mary and all the students and staff that work at or attend St. Mary of the Lake School in Slave Lake. On May 13th, we celebrate St. Mary - Our Lady of Fatima. The Church celebrates the anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady in 1917 at Fatima, Portugal. She appeared to Lucia, who was 9 years old, and her cousins Franco, who was 8, and Jacinta, who was 6 between May 13, 1917, and October 1917. St. Mary is the mother of Jesus and in her daily life she dedicated her life to God’s plan and willingly devoted her life to the life of her son, Jesus. We pray that we all can be more like Mary in our daily lives and interactions.
