Outdoor mass on the shore Indian Lake celebrates Lady Fatima (Audio & video included)

Our Lady of Fatima ShrineThe Our Lady of Fatima Shrine on Indian Lake was the site Thursday evening for an outdoor mass. The auxiliary bishop from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Joseph Binzer, celebrated the mass. The large crowd of Catholics was there to recognize the 49-year existence of the shrine.

Father Patrick Sheridan of St. Mary of the Woods, former pastor Harold Kist, three visiting priests, and deacon Harold Dipple from St. Patrick’s in Bellefontaine joined Bishop Binzer on the altar.

Fatima was a lady in Portugal in the early 20th century who was known for her remarkable healing powers. George W. Quatman directly benefited from her healing powers and created the shrine in her honor. When the shrine was destroyed in a fire, Quatman had the shrine resurrected. Quatman, whose family was well-represented at the mass, was a significant financial supporter of St. Marys. The family has continued that support.

Father Sheridan discusses George Quatman.

Coincidently, the mass was held on the feast of Assumption - a holy day of obligation for Catholics. The day celebrates Mary, who willingly became the mother of God’s son Jesus Christ.Bishop Binzer and Father Sheridan

Thursday marked the third time that Bishop Binzer celebrated the mass. Father Sheridan indicated that traditionally the archdiocese sends the archbishop or his auxiliary to celebrate the mass.
