Celebrate Our Lady of Fatima with Prayer

Yesterday, two of my children and I were able to participate in part of a Holy Hour while making a visit to view the International Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima and the relics nearby.

We had hoped to also attend a Mass and children's blessing with the relic of a piece of the holm-oak tree on which Our Blessed Mother appeared in Fatima and some relics of Jacinta and Francesco, but due to commitments in our own parish, we could not.  However, it is likely that we will be blessed with that experience another time, since the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is scheduled to visit other area churches in the future.

Visit with the Fatima Statue Yourself

If you'd like to visit with the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima yourself,
check the schedule or request a visit for your local church, school conference, prayer group, or hospital chapel.  The beautiful Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is currently scheduled to visit many locations throughout the United States in the current months, continuing its long tradition of doing so.
In fact, the statue has been traveling throughout the world for 70 years!

In 1947,
blessed by Pope Pius the XII blessed the statue before it made its first pilgrimage in order to celebrate and commemorate the 30th anniversary of the apparition of the Blessed Mother to the children in Fatima.  Since then, the International Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima has spent time at the United Nations and also traveling throughout the world.

In the Massachusetts Area?  

If you'd like to enjoy a family-friendly event in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, the 75th Anniversary of Family Rosary, and the 25th Anniversary of Servant of God Patrick Peyton's death, join Holy Cross Family Ministries on June 3 for a faith-inspired interactive skit, a shared meal, and powerful family prayer experiences.

We have enjoyed other family days of prayer at the Father Peyton Center and have no doubt the upcoming one will be great, too.  It is always a blessing to celebrate faith together as a family there.

Stay up to date on the Family Prayer: Strength and Unity event at the Holy Cross Family Ministries Facebook page.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
