This beautiful pilgrim statue was purchased in 1984 by a priest while on a
pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. While on this same visit to Fatima, the priest and two accompanying priests, witnessed the blessing of this icon of Our Lady at the Cappelina (Little Chapel) on the exact area where Our Lady of Fatima first appeared to the three little shepherds.
Since 1984, this statue has travel to many parishes, churches, and shrines in the United Statues. Recently, this representative of Our Lady was gifted to its present custodian, Ms. Judy Studer who continues her ministry as its custodian along with the treasured First Class relics of Saint Jacinta and Saint Francisco. The First Class relics always accompany the statue, and provide a special blessing bestowed by former Postulator of the Canonization of the Shepherds, now deceased Father Kondor.
This treasured replica of Our Lady of Fatima and the First Class Relics,
accompanied by its volunteer custodian, welcome requests for visits to your
parish, school, or hospital.
