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 – IPVS

IPVS The “world-famous” International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is currently on a two-year Fatima Centennial US Tour for Peace, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, beginning with the Angel of Peace apparitions (2016).  Please visit the Tour website to learn more.

The historic statue was sculpted in 1947 by Jose Thedim. The image reflects the description of Sr. 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.

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.”

On September 1, 2014 the custody and mission of this remarkable statue was placed under the auspice of The World Apostolate of Fatima, USA – “Our Lady’s Blue Army.” We are pleased that Mr. Patrick L. 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.

The National Pilgrim Virgin Statue – NPVS

NPVS A Standard

 

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.

Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima Statue – IHMS 


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. Lucia in Tuy, Spain. It was during this apparition that Our Lady asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. This statue was blessed by Pope Francis on October 23, 2013 at the conclusion of the Wednesday audience 10 days after his consecration of the world to Our Lady of Fatima on October 13.  It was formally introduced at the 2014 March for Life in Washington, D.C., and was most recently present at the consecrations of the Archdiocese of Portland In Oregon and Green Bay, Wisconsin.  This statue will be made available for special events as well as for diocesan statue tours.

These statues are available for diocesan tours during the dates indicated in the tour schedule below. Their custodians will give talks on the Message of Fatima at each parish visited.  Individual written prayer petitions may be placed at the feet of Our Lady throughout each tour and are burned at the conclusion.  Rosaries, scapulars and literature on Fatima are always available at literature tables.

Our Statue Tour Program is made financially feasible by donations and oftentimes parish collections in addition.

Advance approval of the Local Ordinary or Bishop of the diocese is a prerequisite for all statue tours.  It takes a good six months and an adequate number of dedicated individuals with time, mobility and competent internet and email capabilities to set up and conduct an effective statue tour.

 The United Nations International Pilgrim Virgin Statue – UNIPVS

UNPVS

On October 13, 1952, the Bishop of Fatima blessed this image for its mission to the United Nations.

On December 8th, 1952, having been brought to America from Fatima, the statue was taken into the Meditation Room of the United Nations by Msgr. Harold Colgan, founder of the Blue Army now known as the World Apostolate of Fatima. It was at the United Nations that Monsignor Colgan led the recitation of the Rosary. Since that time, the UN International Pilgrim Statue has been part of the World Apostolate of Fatima and its Dicastery.

This treasured replica of Our Lady of Fatima has traveled the globe.

Mrs. Judith Studer, President of the Providence, Rhode Island Division of the US Apostolate is the Custodian of this statue.  Single parish visitations are are the norm.  On occasion when time permits a second parish located nearby the sponsoring parish may be added to the schedule.

To schedule a visitation of the UNIPVS statue at your parish please visit UNIPVS.
