Conservation Walk at Fatima Shrine

by Mary Curran

The Holliston Conservation Associates are hosting a walk at the Fatima Shrine on Thursday, August 8th at 7:00 PM. 

The walk will be led by Shirley Melle, a long-time member of the Associates and the president of the Xaverian Mission League.  The Fatima Shrine has 23 acres of gardens and paths.

There is a rosary at the shrine that is believed to be the largest in the world. It consists of boulders and the anchor and chain from John F. Kennedy’s ship, on loan to the shrine from the U.S. Navy. 


The walk will be an easy one, on paved paths and will last about an hour.  It will be
dusk, so bring bug spray, if desired.  The Shrine is located at 101 Summer Street 
in Holliston and there is a big parking lot.
