America Needs Fatima Organization

– Jim Tibbets

America Needs Fatima is a campaign to capture the heart and soul of America with the Message of Our Lady of Fatima. Today, Our Lady’s message is timelier than ever in light of the many sins of men and the turning away from the Faith. The America Needs Fatima campaign is dedicated to bringing this urgent message into people’s homes and to the public square.
