Sister of Charity of the Incarnate Word

We are truly blessed every day at Our Lady of Fatima!!! On Monday of this week we received some very special news that we will be receiving a $50,000 grant for our campus!!! This grant will fund things such as a newly configured entrance that will better protect our scholars and staff, new ipads and laptops, new school furniture, additional funds to our tuition assistance program, as well as new basketball goals for our gym!!

Father Clint wrote a beautiful message to our staff and we wanted to share it with our families.


That's a fancy church term for God providing for His people. It's very easy and common to overlook the small and big ways that God's fingerprints are all over the financial blessings He sends to those who are seeking His Kingdom, His will. He promised the 'hundred fold' to those who seek first the Kingdom of God. Sometimes unexpected money comes in... and it confirms that we are in His Will. Sometimes, we get an unexpected discount or an expensive problem turns out to be less expensive... Too often we say "What luck!"

Today, we can proclaim from the rooftops that God is good and provides for His children. We are small, poor and weak... but God is with us!

So, congratulations to Our Lady of Fatima on receiving a huge grant from the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word!!

Book Fair-Thank You!

Thank you to all of our volunteers and family members who purchased items from the Book Fair. Our school earned $2,468.25 in Scholistc bucks! This is going to provide our teachers and library with funds to purchase books and learning materials for the classroom! We are blessed to have such a supportive Fatima Family!

Thank you!!!

Thank you soon to be Deacon Gerry

Gerry Weiser will be ordained as a Deacon of the Catholic Church on Friday, 2/22/19 at the Co-Cathedral of the Scared Heart in Houston. This is a very scared ceremony and Jerry had a limited number of tickets he was issued for this event. He graciously offered two of his tickets to this event to Our Lady of Fatima for silent auction. These tickets raised $400.00 for our school.

Thank you Gerry! We are praying for you at Our Lady of Fatima. Please come support Gerry the way he support us by attending All School's Mass this weekend for Gerry's first mass as an ordained deacon!

J-Lo's Word

God is Good...always....I am constantly reminded of His goodness. He makes ALL things work together.....Fatima Families, I truly believe as God grows our campus, Satan does his best to keep that from happening, and because of that, our campus must ALWAYS be surrounded in love and protection. Our teachers, our scholars, our campus, our Church, NEEDS constant prayers. WE--Fatima--are creating strong disciples of Christ! Satan do not want that to happen, and the ONLY way we can fight against his attacks are through LOVE and PRAYER and GOODNESS. This last week our campus fought some hard battles, but because GOD IS ALWAYS GOOD, we came out stronger than ever. I see you all standing with us, praying, fighting, surrounding us with love and support, and I cannot thank you enough. When I say to each of you, we got you, we got your babies, I know I can say it in full confidence that you have our back too. Thank you all for trusting us and sticking by us. We LOVE your children. I love our scholars. I love our campus. And I love all that I see God doing here. We received so many blessings this week on top of everything else. God is Good. Amen.
