International Pilgrim Virgin Statue Visited
Sacred Heart Chapel was graced by the presence of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima for a few hours on Wednesday, April 25th. The statue has been seen by millions of people all over the world. It was first sent in 1947 as part of a teaching mission intended to bring people in contact with the messages of peace, prayer, conversion and penance demonstrated by the appearance of the Most Holy Virgin Mary to three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. The Dominican Sisters were honored to have the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima present at Sacred Heart Convent and to welcome the many guests from the local community who made a pilgrimage to see it and to pray in its presence.
