Fatima Family Shrine
St. Mary of Mercy Church
Mother of Mercy Carmel Monastery

Fr. Robert J. Fox, founder of the Fatima Family Apostolate decided to build an outdoor shrine for Mass and candlelight processions. With the help of local townspeople he erected the shrine on land that had been donated to him using royalties from his many books and articles.
The shrine features Our Lady of Fatima and areas dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart. Also angels adoring the Holy Eucharist, Saint Joseph and the Christ Child blessing the world as well as a Divine Mercy Shrine.
The shrine was dedicated on September 27 in the Marian Year of 1987.
