The Apostolate

The Fatima Center is a grassroots association of Catholic priests and lay people — the type specifically permitted by the Code of Canon Law — formed in 1978 in response to Our Lady of Fatima’s message of hope and warning to mankind.

The founder and International Director is Father Nicholas Gruner, who for more than 30 years, has dedicated his life to promoting interest in, knowledge of, and obedience to the full Message of Our Lady of Fatima.

On May 13, 1967, while he was in Fatima, Pope Paul VI specially blessed 25 Pilgrim Statues of Our Lady of Fatima, which were to travel from place to place in order to remind the faithful about the Fatima Message.

One of these statues has been entrusted for the last 34 years to Father Gruner to promote the full Fatima Message.

The Fatima Center is blessed and honored to be the custodian of this Pilgrim Statue which makes its way throughout the world, wherever the statue is invited.

The statue visits have become the occasion of many spiritual and temporal blessings given through Our Heavenly Mother’s intercession. In this way, many people get to know about our only hope for peace — Our Lady of Fatima’s Peace Plan from Heaven.

Father Nicholas Gruner is often called the “most controversial priest in the Catholic Church today” for his devoted service to the Message of Our Lady of Fatima. For thirty years, he has fought for the full disclosure of the Third Secret as well as for the proper consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as requested by Jesus and Mary in the Fatima Message.
His unflinching determination to see the requests made by the Blessed Virgin at Fatima are fully complied with, have made him many friends and followers as well as some powerful enemies with the Catholic Church bureaucracy.
