Archbishop Urban J. Vehr founded Our Lady of Fatima Parish on August 13, 1958, appointing Reverend Robert M. Syrianey as the founding pastor. There were approximately 250 families in the newly established parish. Father Syrianey moved into a house near the parish property and started providing daily Masses in the remodeled carport. This carport/chapel was used on weekdays, and Sunday Masses were held in the Lakewood High School auditorium.
