A statue of Our Lady of Fatima, blessed by Pope Francis, has begun a tour of Ireland.
In a celebration of 100 years since the Virgin Mary appeared to three children in the Portugese village, the three-foot-high statue started its journey in Armagh. A series of services will take place across Ireland to mark the jubilee year of the apparitions.
Pope Francis blessed six statues to be brought around the world to appeal for prayer and reparation for peace and to promote the sanctity of family life.
It was brought to Ireland from Rome by the Alliance of the Holy Family International with the Alliance of the Two Hearts Ireland. Members of the public will be able to pray before the pilgrim statue in each of the churches it visits. In the Diocese of Waterford and Lismore, the schedule is as follows:
Tuesday 28th March
3.30pm: Arrival at Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity. Holy Hour begins at 4pm and concludes at 5pm. Mass - 5.30pm. (Celebrant: Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan)
6.30pm: Departing Cathedral
8.30pm: Vigil begins at Holy Family Mission, House of Prayer, Glencomeragh for overnight vigil.
