Bishop Burbidge blesses Our Lady of Fatima Statue

On Sunday, July 16th, The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, made a stop at Fairfax Memorial Park to bless the newly-installed statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Following the blessing, Bishop Burbidge led those present in the recitation of the Rosary.

The statue, sculpted after the image of the renown International Pilgrim Virgin Fatima statue (with the exception of the crown), currently resides in the cemetery's new "Rosary Garden."
