St. Mary’s Rosary Society, together with the World Apostolate of Fatima, is privileged to bring the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima to our parish and to host a day of prayer and celebration in her honor.

Considered the official presence of Our Lady of Fatima in the United States, this lovely hand-carved image of Our Lady was blessed by Pope Paul VI in 1967 and given to our country by the Bishop of Fatima to carry the important message of Fatima.

We cordially invite all parishioners, friends and neighbors to view this stunning work of religious art and learn about Our Lady of Fatima’s call to peace and holiness of life.

The World Apostolate of Fatima – “Our Lady’s Blue Army” is a Public International Association of the Faithful under The Pontifical Council for the Laity, established to speak officially to the world on behalf of the Church about the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
