Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three shepherd-children in 1917.

MANILA – The Queen City of the South is set to host an international conference from Aug. 18 to 19 at the Summit Circle Hotel (above Robinson’s Fuente in Cebu City), to mark 100 years since the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal.

“Amid the very crucial situation of the world today aggravated by the deepening moral and spiritual crisis, thus there is an urgency for us to have recourse to Our Lady,” said Dr. Rene Josef Bullecer, overall event chairman of the Marian World Congress with the theme, “Our Lady at FATIMA: Prophecies of Tragedies or Hope”.

According to him, the Fatima apparitions’ centenary invites the faithful to “re-visit, re-think, and re-live … Her most urgent message of conversion and prayer.”

Speakers include:

  • Br. Wendell Talibong, a lay exorcist;
  • Jaro Archbishop Angel N. Lagdameon, DD;
  • Novaliches Bishop Emeritus Teodoro Bacani, DD, Jr.;
  • Fr. Melvin Castro;
