Calendar for diocesan visit of National Pilgrim Virgin Statue

THE NATIONAL Pilgrim Virgin Statue of the United States will tour throughout the Diocese of Peoria for 15 days at the beginning of October, a month of special rosary devotion.

The 4-foot-tall statue was blessed by Pope Paul VI and presented to our country by the Bishop of Fatima to carry the message of conversion and peace given by Mary to shepherd children in 1917. It is accompanied by William Sockey, a representative of the World Apostolate of Fatima (formerly known as the Blue Army) who will present a background talk at many of the locations.
