The World Apostolate of Fatima’s Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace is underway and coming to Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota!

The historic tour, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, will feature the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue, traveling worldwide for nearly 70 years.

Saint Mary’s University is hosting the tour on Monday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m. in Saint Thomas More Chapel.

It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope, and grace. Please join us that evening 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 never 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 gift to our community.
