Natl. Shrine Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima
Since 1954 Fatima Shrine has been an oasis for peace for pilgrims. The glass domed church is topped by a 13 foot, 10 ton Vermont granite statue of Our Lady of Fatima. It was named a Minor Basilica in 1975. Later it was named the National Shrine to Our Lady of Fatima for the USA. It was completed in 1965. We have 15 acres of beautiful gardens and chapels for prayer and liturgy.
