Our Lady of Fatima School, Huntington

OUR LADY OF FATIMA SCHOOL (1954-1993)

In September of 1954, this school opened under the direction of Srs. Anita Fromn, Alacoque Funkeler, and Carmencita Brown. In September of 1955 the seventh and eighth grades moved into the old “temporary church.”  In 1977, a new addition to the school began, and completed in 1978.

The sisters left the school in 1993, and it continues to function under lay leadership. The school is located in an affluent area of Huntington. The adults are professionals, and they demand a high level of performance from their children. The goal of the school has always been the achievement of academic excellence.

The original team of sisters assigned to Fatima worked together like a well-oiled machine. During the summer vacation of 1957, they gathered at the grotto of the Blessed Mother at the old novitiate on McCoy Road and prayed the rosary together, asking to be allowed to stay at the task for another year.  At the end of summer, all were transferred – to three different schools!

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
