EWTN's The Message of Fatima

An Eight Part Docudrama

First Trailer

To celebrate the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, EWTN have produced an eight episode docudrama series "The Message of Fatima". Filmed last year mainly in Fatima, and also in a London studio. We have engaged some up and coming Catholic actresses and actors to play all the main parts, Our Lady of Fatima, The Three Little Shepherds, The Angel, Sr Lucia etc. 

Our aim was to make one of the most comprehensive film series on Fatima yet produced. The first episode "The Angel of Peace" will be broadcast on May 10 and is mainly dedicated to the apparitions of the Angel in 1916 and also looks at the people of Fatima in the early part of the century.

The second episode "The First Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima" is dedicated to the apparition of Our Lady and will be broadcast on the 13 of May. We also explore the theological context of the message. 

The subsequent apparitions are given their own episodes and will be broadcast on the centenary date throughout the Summer and Autumn of 1917, There will also be a special on the First Saturday Devotion.

The Fatima Hymn adaptation is by Adam Tucker. Adam is also the composer of the soundtrack for the series.

The Fatima Hymn is sung by the soprano Lynne Lee with the choirs of the Dome of Home (Ss Peter, Paul and St Philomena New Brighton) and Bel Canto.
