International Pilgrim Virgin Statue US Tour for Peace

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Marian Apparitions at Fatima, the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima has embarked on a 21 month pilgrimage called the “US Tour for Peace” across the United States.  The statue will be traveling east of the Mississippi in 2016 and west of the Mississippi in 2017 “in a nationwide call to prayer and penance for peace in our nation and conversion of hearts.”    You can request the statue make a stop at your parish by contacting Patrick Sabat at 219-218-8991 or at psabat@bluearmy.com  Please note that permission from your Bishop is required for the statue to visit your diocese.  The schedule is subject to frequent change without notice so please make sure you are checking with the church directly before finalizing your plans.
