Welcome to our Website. We are a bilingual Parish (Portuguese and English) founded by immigrants from Portugal under the patronage of Our Lady of Fatima. Our Chrch had its genesis by 1970. For many years Fr Vozza of Holy Trinity Parish ofered monthly Masses for Calgary’s Portuguese Catholics. Then, Bishop O’Byrne appointed a priest to assist the Portuguese community. Fr. Franklin E. Trudeau was sent to Portugal in order to learn the language. He was the first pastor of the “Portuguese Catholic Mission” and the Masses were at the Croatian Church.
The mission continued to flourished in the 1980s, with St. John’s Parish extending assistance from 1979 to 1984 when the congregation acquired its own makeshift church. With the enthusiastic guidance of Fr. Valentino de Freitas, parish pastor from 1987 to 1995, the Portuguese community built the Our Lady of Fatima Church. The Portuguese faithful of Our Lady of Fatima parish have kept the message of Fatima burning in their hearts and embodied in their worship since the earliest days. The event of Fatima has provided a spiritual compass that guides the faithful to Jesus through Mary.
Join us, you are welcomed.
