Historic Statue of Our Lady to Tour Saint Michael

The Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima statue will visit Saint Michael Catholic Church on Saturday, September 27 at the 8 a.m. Mass, as part of a tour Sept. 9-Oct. 4 of area churches in the diocese.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to come and honor her, ask her powerful intercession and receive the many grace she has to offer us as individuals, families, parishes and as a nation,” said Rev. George Gabet, FSSP, spiritual director of the World Apostolate of Fatima Fort Wayne-South Bend division.
When the Blessed Mother appeared to three children at Fatima on July 13, 1917, she promised them, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

The statue, which will come to Saint Michael, was blessed by Pope Francis
