Monday, June 28th – Visit of the National Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima to St. Mary Church in Salem:

The National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of the USA is a lovely hand-carved Image of Our Lady of Fatima given to our country by the Bishop of Fatima in 1967 and crowned by Cardinal O’Boyle in the National Basilica in Washington, DC in 1971. The Statue was blessed by Pope Paul VI during his visit to Fatima in 1967.

The statue will be received in Salem before the 8:15am Mass on Monday, June 28th, and remain in the church throughout the day for veneration and prayer.  At 12 Noon, the Rosary of Our Lady will be prayed, with a short talk by Mr. Bill Sockey.  At 5:30pm, a Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form will be celebrated, followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  At 7:00pm, a talk on Our Lady of Fatima will be given by Mr. Bill Sockey, who travels the United States with the National Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima Statue.  Light refreshments will be served in the lobby of the school follwoing this evening talk.

Please mark your calendars for this special opportunity given to our parish and arranged by Msgr. Charles Mangan, Director of the Marian Apostolate for Sioux Falls.   For more information on the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, you may go to:
