The World Apostolate of Fatima's Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace is underway and coming to our community!
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.
St. Mary's Church in Iowa City is hosting the tour on Nov. 2 & 3.
The tour will arrive at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 2 and depart on Thursday, Nov. 3 after the 12:10 pm Mass.
It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace. Please join us 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 not ever be able to make a pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. We bring the pilgrimage to you!
Hundreds of 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.
A schedule with times listed for talks on the Message of Fatima, procession, veneration, confession, rosary, and scapular enrollment can be downloaded below.
