About Us

The World Apostolate of Fatima, Cleveland Division is an independent 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, of The World Apostolate of Fatima, USA. All Divisions are created with the permission of the local bishop.

The World Apostolate of Fatima, USA, Inc., was originally known as The Blue Army, which began in 1947. The name was changed when the Vatican raised our organization to the status of Public International Association of the Faithful, which was permanently decreed in October 2010. The tagline, “Our Lady’s Blue Army” appears with our name for the sake of continuity.

The World Apostolate of Fatima, is the only Fatima organization in the world which speaks “in the name of the Church” and “with the authority of the Church” on Fatima.

The Cleveland Division of The World Apostolate of Fatima, has been in our Diocese since 1968. We have a rich history of spreading the message of Fatima within the diocese and taking pilgrimages to Fatima, Portugal. Join us at one of the parishes hosting a World Apostolate of Fatima Prayer Cell and Holy Hour. For more information about our events, visit our webpage

I hope you’ll be able to experience the blessing of
gathering with others devoted to Our Lady.

Please join us in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of
Our Lady of Fatima.
