HOUSTON — The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fátima is coming to the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in downtown Houston, located at 1111 St. Joseph Pkwy.

The statue will be at the church during that Saturday Masses at 5 p.m. in English and 7 p.m. in Vietnamese; Sunday at the 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. English Masses; at the 1 p.m. Vietnamese Mass and at the 7:30 p.m. Spanish Mass.
