CHILDREN of FATIMA
This name, "Children of Fatima", strengthens the necessity as much for children as for adults to model their souls on those of the shepherd youngsters :
They worship their God,
They solace Mary’s Immaculate Heart,

This is a three-purpose periodical :
- To foster the rosary’s recitation and the practice of sacrifices.
- To follow up the teachings of the Holy Virgin through a two-year long session.
- And to help the soul :
- in the practice, for five successive months, of the first Saturday,
- in the consecration to Mary's Immaculate Heart,
- to get the spirit of sacrifice in the various providential circumstances of life,
- to be faithful to the duties proper to one’s state of life.

Monitoring of child’s progress
The children may show off their page listing the efforts they offered, for a priest to sign it.
In order to keep the children in long-term endeavour and piety along these two years to come, from time to time they’ll receive with their bulletin something to spur them on to piety and spirit of sacrifice (pictures,...).
It is individual for the 6 to 12 years old children (Each child is singly registered so as to receive his own newsletter). The amount is 10€ for the 6 to 12 years old children and 30€ for all others (an adult newsletter per family is enough).
