Pictures of Pilgrimage to Quito, Ecuador – Our Lady of Good Success
Feb 15, 2015
Br. Maximillian and Sr. Mary Elizabeth of the Fraternity of St. Mary of the Angels made a pilgrimage a couple of weeks ago to Quito, Ecuador to visit the Royal Convent of the Immaculate Conception in which the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Good Success is publicly displayed on Feast of the Purification (among other times). They were so gracious to supply us with several pictures taken during their visit. Thank you!
