The launch of the World Apostolate of Fatima’s U.S. Tour for Peace is underway and coming to our Diocese!


The historic 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.

The tour runs through 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 this Diocese.

The Statue will be at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.  We will begin with an anticipation Mass at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, October 18th. This will follow with the Rosary, Music, and Prayer until the Statue arrives at approximately 8:00 PM.  We will continue through the entire evening and close at noon on Wednesday, October 19th. See the schedule on the reverse side of this.

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. Our Lord told Sister Lucia that he had placed the peace of the world in the Immaculate Heart.

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!

Prayer for the Fatima Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace

O Queen of the Rosary, Sweet Virgin of Fatima, who has deigned to appear in the land of Portugal, we beg you to watch over our dear homeland and assure its moral and spiritual revival. Bring back peace to all the nations of the world so that all, our own nation in particular, may be happy to call you their Queen and the Queen of Peace. Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for our country. Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for all humanity a lasting peace.
