Additional details and event times will be released in the days ahead.
It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace.
Please join us that day to hear the story of Fatima and venerate this beautiful statue that set out from Fatima in 1947 to bring the graces of Fatima to all who might not ever be able to make a pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal.
We bring the pilgrimage to you!
Hundreds and favors and graces, including cures, and countless conversions are associated with the image.
The presence of this special Statue (sculpted by Jose Thedim in 1947, based on Sr. Lucia's description of her encounters with Our Lady) is a great honor and gift to our parish.
