National Pilgrim Virgin Statue

The National Pilgrim Virgin Statue Program

The National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is a beautiful hand-carved image of Our Lady of Fatima given to the United States by the bishop of Fatima after being blessed by Pope Paul VI in 1967. She was crowned by Cardinal O’Boyle at the National Basilica in Washington, DC in 1971.

This statue presently travels across the United States under the sponsorship of the WAF USA. She has proven time and again to be the catalyst for renewed interest in the message of Fatima and for exposing new generations of Catholics who are unaware of the important message of conversion and peace brought by Our Lady to the three shepherd children in 1917 at Fatima, Portugal.

We have also introduced a new statue at the 2014 March for Life in Washington, DC. The statue is the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as she appeared in 1929 to Sr. Lucia in Tuy, Spain. It was during this apparition that Our Lady asked for the consecration of Russia. This statue was blessed by Pope Francis on October 23, 2013.

These statues are available for diocesan tours of approximately three weeks.  Their custodians will give talks on the Message of Fatima at each parish visited.

To inquire about a tour of the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue in your diocese, please contact Deacon Bob Ellis at 920-371-1931 or by email at rellis@bluearmy.com.
