The purpose of our statue tours is to bring the graces of Fatima and Our Lady’s message of hope, peace and salvation to those many thousands of people who may never have an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to Fatima itself.
The “world-famous” International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is currently on a two-year , marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, beginning with the Angel of Peace apparitions (2016). The historic statue was sculpted in 1947 by Jose Thedim. Lucia, one of the three shepherd children who were privileged to see Our Lady each month from May through October of 1917 in Fatima, Portugal.
We have acquired a new statue which is an image of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima as she appeared in 1929 to Sr. It was during this apparition that Our Lady asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

This statue will be made available for special events as well as for diocesan statue tours.
On October 13,1947, more than 150,000 Fatima pilgrims witnessed the blessing of this image of Our Lady by the Bishop of Leiria at Fatima, Portugal as he commissioned it to serve as the Pilgrim Virgin who would carry the blessings of Fatima and Our Lady’s message throughout the world to the many millions of her children who would never have an opportunity to visit Fatima.
The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue has traveled the world many times visiting more than 100 countries, including Russia and Red China, bringing the great message of salvation and of hope, “the peace plan from heaven,” to countless millions of people.
So many miracles and signal graces have been reported wherever the statue has traveled that, in 1951, Pope Pius XII remarked: “In 1946, we crowned Our Lady of Fatima as Queen of the World and the next year, through Her Pilgrim Statue, She set forth as though to claim Her dominion, and the favors She performs along the way are such that we can hardly believe what we are seeing with our eyes.” We are pleased that Mr. Sabat, who has served as one of the custodians of this statue for many years, will continue as its principal custodian, working now under the direction of the apostolate.

She was crowned by Cardinal O’Boyle at the National Basilica in Washington, DC in 1971.
