Visit of the International Pilgrim Stature of Our Lady of Fatima

The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue is coming to the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center on Wednesday, March 11.
After an historic tour across America during the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue is returning to the archdiocese for a 22-day tour of parishes and schools. The statue will be at the Farm on Wednesday, March 11, beginning at 4:30 pm. Mary came to bring us a message of hope and peace for a world in need. This visitation is an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace. Many who have venerated this special statue have experienced Our Lady’s presence and favors. The statue was created in 1947 by Portuguese sculptor José Thedim based on the description of Sister Lucia, the oldest of the three seers. It has visited more than 100 countries.
