OUR LADY OF FATIMA CENTER, 6707 Quimby Ave., has been a unique inner-city Roman Catholic social service facility founded in 1970. The center grew out of OUR LADY OF FATIMA CHURCH. Br. Anselm Deehr from the Fatima Parish, a member of the religious order Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity, opened Our Lady of Fatima Center to feed the hungry and to handle material crises. By 1994 Our Lady of Fatima Center had instituted other programs, such as Head Start, tutoring, and counseling. Although the church again merged with St. Agnes in 1980, Our Lady of Fatima Center still served the old Fatima parish.
