Tour of the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima
The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is visiting at Holy Trinity Church this weekend. This tour across the United States is sponsored by the World Apostolate of Fatima, the official voice of the Vatican on the Message of Fatima, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady to three children in Fatima, Portugal. The mission of the Apostolate is to learn, live and spread the message of Our Lady of Fatima, in communion with the Church and in concert with the New Evangelization. The tour is a nation-wide call to prayer and penance for peace in our nation and conversion of hearts.
The statue will arrive at Holy Trinity at 7:00pm on Sunday and will be carried in procession into the church. All parishioners are encouraged to participate. A Holy Hour and all-night Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady will follow. We have invited parishioners from all of the Catholic churches in Bloomington-Normal to join us in prayer.
All are encouraged to attend the Holy Hour and to spend some time with the Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of Fatima. Come and stay for as long as you want, give your prayer petitions to Our Savior Jesus and Our Blessed Mother, and pray as Our Lady asks us for peace in our community and our world. The statue will remain at Holy Trinity until after the 8:00am Mass on Monday, and then will move to Corpus Christi Elementary School where students, faculty and community members will have the opportunity for veneration.
