The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima is coming to St. Stans
The tour of the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima is a nation-wide call to prayer and penance for peace in our nation and conversion of hearts. That’s because prayer is more powerful than any army on earth. Our Lady promised, “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” The tour and your prayers will create an outpouring of grace to allow Our Lady of Fatima to claim her dominion over our country through her Immaculate Heart.
On October 24, 1952, Pope Pius XII blessed the statue and imparted a special blessing on the work of the Fatima Pilgrim Tours. Throughout the subsequent decades, John Haffert traveled worldwide with the statue, organizing peace tours. The most famous peace tour occurred on October 16, 1992 when six bishops descended on Red Square in Moscow carrying the Pilgrim Virgin Statue. It was crowned at midnight in front of Lenin’s tomb.
The statue has visited more than 100 countries, including Russia and China, bringing the great message of salvation and hope, “the peace plan from Heaven,” to countless millions of people. Many miracles and signal graces have been reported wherever the statue has traveled. On September 1, 2014, the custody and mission of this world-famous statue was placed under the auspice of The World Apostolate of Fatima, USA – “Our Lady’s Blue Army,” and continues her journeys throughout the world with its principal statue custodian Patrick L. Sabat.

"The schedule is still being worked on, but you can count on this statue arriving on Oct 6th around 10 AM and staying at our parish until Oct 7th, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, after 8 AM Mass. We are hoping that we will have a GREAT turn out for these events on those 2 days! Please pray your rosaries this month for a GREAT success with this wonderful event!
Hoping to have 2 Masses on Oct 6th, benediction,and a night time procession after the evening Mass and before All Night Vigil - we will really need people to stand guard and watch one hour with Our Lord and Our Lady on this night! Let's work together for a beautiful 22 hours with Our Lady of Fatima as I believe she has chosen all of us to help her rekindle this beautiful devotion to Her Immaculate Heart during this 100 anniversary celebration in the Milwaukee area! As she said: "In the End my Immaculate Heart will triumph" May she first triumph over our own hearts! She is counting on all of us!"
