The Famous Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is coming to our Parish!
The historic World Apostolate of Fatima Tour, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal, will feature the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue, traveling worldwide for nearly 70 years.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church is the only church in the Brooklyn Diocese besides the Co-Cathedral to be selected to host this sacred statue…and for one day only.
The tour runs through select churches in all 50 states and will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope, and grace. Any who have been in the presence of this special Statue (created in 1947 based on Sr. Lucia's description of her encounters with Our Lady) know that.
I hope you'll be able to experience the blessing of gathering with others devoted to Our Lady when the statue visits our parish:
The Pilgrim Statue is scheduled to arrive at Our Lady of Guadalupe at approximately noon on Thursday, May 19th, 2016.
There will be hours set aside from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm for quiet prayers and meditation to those wanting to do so.
At 6:00 pm, there will be a special recitation of the rosary, followed at 7:00 pm by a special mass in honor of our Blessed Mother.
This epic journey across the United States is to allow Our Lady of Fatima, the Queen of Peace, to claim her dominion over our country and to bring the message of Fatima—the Peace Plan from heaven—to a world in need.
The Pilgrim Virgin Statue has visited more than 100 countries, bringing Mary's powerful and timeless message of salvation and hope to millions. Countless favors and graces have been reported wherever the Virgin Statue has traveled.
Please join us…..And will you help us spread the word about the tour by forwarding this email to friends, family, and any others who might be touched by Our Lady...
