The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will return on Jan. 15, 2018 to Guam since its last visit in 2015. This particular statue is different from the International Centennial Pilgrim Image of Our Lady of Fatima that was on Guam this past August-September 2017.

First arriving on island in 2006, the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue also made its second visit eight years ago in 2010. All three times, the pilgrimage was incredible, with thousands of the faithful filling the parishes during Our Blessed Mother’s visit, taking their time to venerate the statue and place their petitions to Our Lady for her intercession.

Father Michael Crisostomo and the parish of Immaculate Heart of Mary have been coordinating these visits with the caretakers and organizers of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima.
