A world renown holy statue is making its way to several Valley churches over the next couple of weeks.
The United Nations International Pilgrim Virgin Statue made its first stop on Thursday at Saint Mary’s Church in Warren for parishioners to see up close. The statue promotes the Fatima message around the world of prayer, penance and reparation.
“In many places it goes there are healings of different kinds of people who do not want to heal their physical illness, Mary as a mother helps unite her children together. Families who have been separated come together,” said Judy Studer, statue custodian.
The statue will be at Austinwoods Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 4780 Kirk Rd, Austintown from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and at Vista Center of Boardman, 830 Boardman Canfield Rd. from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. For a complete schedule of area visits, click here.
The visitation is sponsored by the World Apostolate of Fatima, Warren-Youngstown, Ohio division.
