Fatima Centennial US Tour for Peace

The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will begin a two-year Fatima Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace,March 21, 2016 – December 20, 2017, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Angel of Peace (1916) and the Blessed Mother (1917) at Fatima, Portugal.
The tour will launch in our home Diocese of Metuchen, NJ, and travel to parishes in more than 100 dioceses throughout the United States.  Our goal is to reach all 50 states.
Purpose of the Tour:
  • Allow Our Lady of Fatima to claim her dominion over our country,
  • Spread the message of Fatima – the Peace Plan from Heaven – to a world in need,
  • Promote devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary through Marian Consecration,
  • Ignite hope and confidence in the Mother of God who desires peace in our world and the salvation of souls
The tour is dedicated to the three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, to whom the Blessed Mother appeared and exhorted them to be fervent in working for the salvation of souls and conversion of sinners through daily prayer and penance in reparation for sins. She identified the conversion of sinners as key to peace in the world.
“In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph”

Say “Yes” to Our Lady

Join us in a 54 Day Novena Prayer for the success of the tour, beginning January 27 until our launch date March 21.
