"Pray, pray a great deal and make sacrifices for sinners, for many souls go to hell because they have no one to pray and make sacrifices for them".
Each Year our monastery has the privilege and honor of welcoming the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of our Lady of Fatima as the holy statue travels around the world, bringing message of peace and hope to millions of faithful Catholics, and bestowing graces and blessings upon our world through the prayers of the faithful.
We invite you to join us again this year as the Pilgrim Virgin comes to us on the First Saturday of the year, January 4th, 2014 with 8:00 a.m. Mass followed by rosary and prayer until 10:00 a.m.
The statue was sculpted in 1947 by Jose Thedim based on the description of Sister Lucia, one of the three children who saw our Lady each month from May to October 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. On October 13, 1947, in the presence of some 150,000 pilgrims, the statue was blessed by Bishop of Leiria, to be the pilgrim, the traveler.
