SHRINE TO HOST THE FATIMA CENTENNIAL U.S. TOUR FOR PEACE
"Are you suffering a lot? Do not worry. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God."
The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima is on an historic 2-year tour of America to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, and is coming to our church!
The National Shrine will host the tour on Thursday, August 17. It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace. Please join us that day to hear the story of the apparitions and venerate this beautiful statue that set out from Fatima in 1947 to bring graces to all who might not ever be able to make a pilgrimage to Portugal. The pilgrimage will be brought to you!
Hundreds and favors and graces, including cures, and countless conversions are associated with the image. The presence of this special Statue (sculpted according to the description of Sister Lucia, the Fatima seer) is a great gift to our community.
