A pilgrimage is a time set apart from what is familiar. It is a time of prayer, of penance, and of experiencing the surprises of Divine Providence Most of all, it is a grace-filled encounter that challenges and transforms one’s life.
Join the Te Deum Foundation in responding to our Lady’s invitation to Fatima, Portugal. We will visit many treasured and inspiring sites of the Church’s heritage and in Portuguese culture and history, such as the capital city of Lisbon, St Anthony of Padua’s birthplace, the Monument of the Expeditions, the city of Obidos (a medieval walled city), Santarem, the Church of the Miracle of the Holy Eucharist, the home of Bl. Alexandrina of the Holy Eucharist and the church where she is buried. We will see the homes of the children of Fatima, where they were baptized, the village Church, the place where the Angel appeared and gave the children Holy Communion. We will celebrate Mass at the tombs of the children in the Basilica, and participate in the beautiful evening candlelight processions.
Love for souls and love for the Church is the motivating influence behind the work of the Te Deum Foundation, and taking pilgrims – priests, seminarians, and laity – to Fatima fosters this love through a precious encounter with the Blessed Mother’s presence.
Join us for an experience that will deepen your love for Christ, His Mother, and the call to prayer, love, and penance for souls.

This chaplet was inspired by the prayers taught to the three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1916, during three apparitions of an angel. The angel first appeared in the spring of 1916 as the children were pasturing their sheep. The angel said, “Fear not, I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” The angel knelt on the ground and recited this prayer three times as the children repeated it after him, “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.”
During the second apparition in the summer of the same year, the angel urged the children to pray and offer sacrifices for the conversion of sinners. In the angel’s final appearance, he prostrated himself on the ground before a vision of a chalice and host and said, “Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.” Then he gave the Chalice to Jacinta and Francisco and the Holy Communion Host to Lucia.
Over many years these prayers were prayed on the rosary beads by several of the religious orders in Fatima, Portugal. In the summer of 2004, Father Christopher Roux, while on pilgrimage in Fatima, visited the Irish Dominican Sisters of the Perpetual Rosary. One of the Sisters presented Father this “Rosary of the Angel” and encouraged him to present it to his Bishop for approval.
Bishop Peter J. Jugis of the Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina, had a great desire to encourage Eucharistic Adoration and so he formed and named the prayers the Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation. Bishop Jugis placed his imprimatur on this chaplet December 8, 2004, during the Year of the Eucharist. The Te Deum Foundation developed the chaplet prayer card with the image of the Three Little Shepherds receiving the Chalice from the Angel. This image which presents the Three Little Shepherds and the Angel is in a stain glass window high above the sanctuary located in the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary in Fatima.
The prayer card of the Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation was produced under the guidance and approval of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima and is now available in many languages. The proceeds from this card help the mission of the Te Deum Foundation to “Build a Seminary” in the Southeastern United States.
The Foundation is offering the Chaplet of Adoration & Reparation in ten (10) languages:
