On October 13, we had a ULRA Pilgrimage to commemorate the last Fatima
apparition. We did a 9-day Novena each month from May to October. Three days
before the pilgrimage, we had three days of Retreat for all the ULRA members in
each parish and chapel in the Moshi Diocese. All the ULRA members participated
and made their confessions. The pilgrims departed from their homes at 6:30 a.m.
to their local parish to receive blessings from their parish priest. Some traveled
by bus, foot or car to the meeting place. The procession started at 10 a.m. When
we reached the Kilema parish, we made the Stations of the Cross and attended
Holy Mass. The walk back from Kilema was 1.5 miles and the event came to an end
about 4 p.m. Not all the members of the Living Rosary were able to attend this
pilgrimage as some were ill, funds did not permit and others had school. Special
thanks to all of you for the devotional items. May God bless and keep you always!
