Laudetur Jesus Christus.

Welcome to “Mary’s House in Sassaquin’s” home on the world-wide web.

Here you will find information concerning the life of our parish community, including religious education schedule, parish family events and perhaps you have visited us in person at one of our weekend liturgies and would like to join our parish family as an active member.

As we at Our Lady of Fatima Parish enter the 21st Century, we hope that you enjoy your visit with us at Mary’s House on the Web and invite you to join us in person at any of the events which are part of the very fabric of our life as a Catholic Parish Family in the far North End of the Whaling City of New Bedford.

May Our Lady of Fatima pray for us and intercede on our behalf.

Welcome to Mary’s House in Sassaquin.
