Ignatius Press prepares for 100th anniversary of Fatima with a historic pilgrimage and new release San Francisco, November 21, 2016 – The long-awaited 100th anniversary of the appearances of Our Lady at Fatima in 1917 is around the corner, and Ignatius Press has exciting plans to help the faithful prepare for this historic year.
Next year is the time to visit and celebrate this famous Marian apparition. Ignatius Press, in conjunction with Steve and Janet Ray, will be leading a very special pilgrimage to celebrate this amazing and historical visit of our Blessed Mother at Fatima from May 16-25, 2017.
Steve and Janet Ray are well-known for their inspiring pilgrimages, dynamic sense of adventure, and travel expertise. Guest speakers will include leading Fatima expert Fr. Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R, Mark Brumley, President of Ignatius Press, and Fr. Mark Mary of EWTN.
On this pilgrimage, travelers will experience the beauty, faith and cultures of Portugal, Spain and France. Pilgrims will visit Fatima and experience the quaint ambiance of the village as it was 100 years ago. Today pilgrims walk through the narrow streets, see the thatched roofs and visit the homes and church of the children.
The sites where the angels and the Blessed Mother appeared are maintained in there pristine condition which elicits prayer and meditation. Masses and processions are held daily at the very place that 70,000 people looked up and saw the sun dance. One steps back in time as they walk in the footprints of the children and pray at the places of the apparitions.
Pilgrims will also visit Santiago de Compostela and Lourdes, among other sites. Also exciting will be the visit to Loyola in Spain which is the city of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Throughout the pilgrimage, the best hotels and finest dining will be provided, along with inspiring talks about the Catholic faith.
Daily Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Andrew Apostoli and Fr. Mark Mary each day at the most sacred sites as pilgrims are immersed in some of the most visited Marian shrines in the world.
