Patrick Sabat completed his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy at Our Lady of Peace College Seminary in the Diocese of Tarlac, Philippines. While discerning a possible vocation to the priesthood, he studied philosophy at the Jesuit university, Ateneo de Manila, later holding a teaching position at the Tarlac State University. He hosted Catholic radio and TV programs, and ventured into a computer/media production business. After his marriage he immigrated to Singapore, where he was asked to accompany the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue Fatima in 2003, mostly to Asia and Australia. Five years later he gave up his university career and businesses to work full time as the IPVS Statue custodian worldwide.
Patrick has travelled internationally spreading the message of Fatima and promoting devotion to Our Blessed Mother and the Eucharist, the Rosary and the Scapular. He has delivered engaging talks during conferences and various presentations in many different settings, including churches, schools and universities, correctional facilities, nursing homes and hospitals. Our Lady has shown him the wonderful work of a lay apostle through the Pilgrim Virgin Statue Program, and the vocation he was searching for himself.
Patrick continues its teaching mission as the principle statue custodian and now the Director of the PVS Program of the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA (The Blue Army). He has been a frequent guest on radio and television, and has given hundreds of media interviews including EWTN, Relevant Radio, Fox News and CBS News among others. He and his wife, Mary Anne, and their 3 young children: Elias, Patrick Jr., and Marci Anna, now live in Munster, Indiana as proud American citizens.
