Marian procession in Ranau draws over 3000 people

RANAU – The candlelight procession marking the closing of the centenary of the Fatima Apparitions at St Peter Claver (SPCR) here drew over 3ooo people on 25 Nov 2017.

After Sunset Mass, Father Nicholas Stephen crowned the statue of Our Lady of Fatima and garlanded her with a rosary, a scapular and a sash with KadazanDusun design before the procession.

Despite the unpredictable weather, the procession went around Ranau town area before returning to the church.  The procession closed with the offering of flowers to Mother Mary outside the church.

SPCR has become a popular pilgrimage site since the Year of Mercy in 2016 when it was one of the four ‘Holy Doors” in Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese under the pastoral leadership of Fr Stephen, Father Francis Tsen, and Father Florian Marcus.
