Pilgrimage in a Day - June 13, 2017 & August 13, 2017


This summer marks the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s miraculous apparitions to Lúcia Santos, Jacinta Marto and Francisco Marto at Fátima in Portugal.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime event of great spiritual importance... but for many reasons, it may be impossible for you to travel across the Atlantic for a pilgrimage.  You can experience a meaningful pilgrimage much closer to home, in a beautiful and holy place.  The Franciscan Friars, T.O.R. offer you the opportunity to join us for a “Pilgrimage in a Day” at our Mount Assisi monastery in Loretto, PA, in honor of Our Lady of Fátima.


Visit the holy places and sites in Loretto, including:

  • Saint Michael’s Basilica
  • The Carmel of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
  • Immaculate Conception Chapel at Saint Francis University
  • The Schwab Estate, location of Saint Francis Friary
  • The Sunken Gardens of Mount Assisi
  • The Our Lady of Fátima Shrine in the  Sunken Gardens

 Also . . .

A spiritual presentation and guided prayer by a Friar of our community.

The opportunity for a Plenary Indulgence connected to Our Lady of Fátima.

A boxed lunch and a sit-down dinner.

A visit to The Friar’s Shop, the Franciscan mission store.

Participation in our monthly devotions honoring the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions at Fátima.
