About the Ave Maria Shrine in Opelousas, Louisiana:
In June of 1994, two young men from Venezuela visited the Opelousas Ave Maria Rosary Group. They claimed to hear and see the Blessed Virgin Mary. They shared messages of conversion, penance, fasting, sacrifices, weekly confession daily Rosary and mass.
In April of 1996 Our Lady asked the Ave Maria Rosary Group to build a replica of the original Fatima Shrine. This was built by hard work and donations. The Shrine was opened November 19, 2000.
They have had claims of healings, conversions and answered prayers since that time.
They invite you and your families to come to the Shrine and pray and receive the blessings, comfort and peace from Our Lady.
They hold a cenacle of prayer every Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. On the first Saturday of each month, Our Lady has promised her presence at the Shrine from 6:00 p.m. to 6:05 p.m. She is there to receive our petitions and prayers. The recitation of the four rosaries and Way of the Cross, begins at 3:00 pm.
They operate on donations and the generosity of others. Donations accepted. Can be mailed to:
