who are we?

The Postulation of Francisco and Jacinta Marto is an institution of the Catholic Church which, under the orientation of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints and of the Bishop of the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima, has the mission of promoting the cause of Canonization of Blesseds Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

This work is done through the propagation of the life and holiness of the Little Shepherds, and the diffusion of their cult amongst the people of God, as well as by encouraging the faithful to ask for graces through the intercession of the Little Shepherds.

It’s in our duty to manage all the process, to emphasize the importance of the Little Shepherds for the piety of the Christians, and to promote public awareness on their personality and spirituality.
