Hope and peace for our times.

Our mission is to help people learn, live and spread the message of Our Lady of Fatima in communion with the Church and in concert with the New Evangelization.

The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue begins a tour of the Archdiocese of Newark, NJ, June 3 – 15. We welcome all to come and honor the Mother of God, implore her intercession and seek her favors. It is a special gift to venerate this blessed image, traveling worldwide since 1947.
