St. Teresa of Avila Parish Activities


National Pilgrim Virgin Statue Tour
The National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima presently travels across the United State under the sponsorship of the World Apostolate of Fatima USA (WAF, and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is blessed to host a tour of the statue this September. St. Teresa of Avila is personally honored and privileged to host the statue on Monday, September 25 from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. in church.

The statue is a beautiful hand-carved image of Our Lady of Fatima given to the United States by the bishop of Fatima after being blessed by Pope Paul VI in 1967. The statue was crowned by Cardinal O'Boyle at the National Basilica in Washington, DC in 1971, and the statue has proven time and again to be the catalyst for renewed interest in the message of Fatima and for exposing new generations of Catholics, who are unaware of the important message of conversion and peace brought by Out Lady to the three shepherd children in 1917 at Fatima, Portugal.
