The Blessed Virgin Mary, appeared six times to three shepherd children near the town of Fatima, Portugal between May 13 and October 13, 1917. Appearing to the children, the Blessed Virgin told them that She had been sent by God with a message for every man, woman and child living in our century. She promised that Heaven would grant peace to all the world if Her requests for prayer, reparation and consecration were heard and obeyed.
These visitations culminated in the public Miracle of the Sun event, even as the apparition of Virgin Mary divulged three secrets to the children.
AGLOW IN FATIMA
Having successfully led pilgrimages to other destinations, we were approached by several priests to organise their next parish pilgrimages to Fatima.
Supporting the local community of Fatima, we chose works closely with small family run businesses and local people to create an authentic and personal pilgrimage experience in Fatima.
It was our pleasure to welcome the staff from our first choice hotels in Fatima to visit our home city of Bath and enjoy an afternoon of sightseeing and lunch!
Our friendly office support team in Fatima ensure all our Fatima pilgrimages run smoothly and pilgrims are well looked after every step of their journey.
