The last visitors watch as a custodian reaches to remove the crown from a statue of Mary, packing for the next stop on a centennial tour. The International Pilgrim Virgin statue was at Mission Dolores Basilica on August 16, 2017, before a second day in San Francisco at the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi. The statue represents Mary as seen miraculously in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, giving a message of world peace.
