(KSDK) — A statue of Our Lady of Fatima is touring more than a dozen St. Louis parishes this month.
Three children in Portugal said the apparition told them to pray for peace and warned of the rising threat from communist Russia in 1917.
The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is based on the description of one of those children.
The 40-pound mahogany statue will be on display at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Florissant until 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, then goes on to St. Ferdinand Church, also in Florissant.
