Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Fatima

03/03/2017 | Comments

The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be in the Diocese of Colorado Springs March 4-26. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Blessed Mother’s apparitions at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. On the 13th day of the month from May through October, the Virgin Mary appeared to three children who were in the countryside tending sheep — Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos — and told them to pray the rosary each day in reparation for sins. Following is a list of parishes where the statue will be on display as well as a schedule of events for each visit. At each parish, an ambassador will give at least one 25-minute presentation.
