On 23rd June 2011, during Corpus Christi celebrations at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Port-of-Spain) from 8:30-11:15, Fatima students were dressed in dress uniform and present in great abundance. Under the guidance of Fr. Gregory and Miss Annie Gomes-Phillips, it was noted that we had the largest attendance of Fatima persons ever for this occasion!
Everyone marched around Independence Square, praying the rosary in a procession, after the mass conducted by Archbishop Edward Gilbert. Catholics from all over the country flocked in their numbers, outside the cathedral to celebrate the Eucharist as the body of Christ. Even our Fatima’s scouts were donning their uniform (some who recently underwent investiture) to commemorate the event. As tradition dictates, six Fatima Form 6’s along with 6 Holy Name Convent girls carried the canopy over archbishop as he walked with Eucharist.
This jubilant festival is celebrated by Roman Catholics to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body of Christ during Mass! It is at times like these, that Fatima College- as a proud Catholic school shines proudly.
