The Blue Army, known also as the Worldwide Apostolate of Our Lady of Fatima is a lay apostolate to promote the Peace Plan from Heaven. In 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children with a message to pray the rosary daily, with the scapular and offer your daily duty for the conversion of sinners. In May of 1969, Fr. Francis Van Hout consecrated our Parish to Our Lady of Fatima. At that time the large statue purchased by Gene Vacca, a parishioner was place in the Church. Three smaller pilgrim statues were made available to the parishioners to invite into their homes and still are available. The rosary continues to be prayed before Mass and the First Saturday Devotion continue to be led by Blue Army members.
