Sisters of Life and FOCUS Missions: A Marian Pilgrimage to France, Spain and Portugal

Application deadline is Feb. 15!! Apply at

On May 13th, 1917, Our Lady appeared to the shepherd children Lúcia dos Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto in Fatima, Portugal. What followed were a series of saintly visions and flocks of pilgrims, drawn to the poor town of Fatima in hopes of receiving the grace of the Blessed Mother.  Come join FOCUS Missions and the Sisters of Life on our pilgrimage to Fatima, as we honor the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s miraculous appearance and journey down the same paths the saintly children did all those years ago. We will also travel through Spain and to Lourdes on pilgrimage. Ladies, this is a trip you don’t want to miss!
