The Church of the Most Holy Trinity is a Roman Catholic church in the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Fátima, Portugal. Ranked as the fourth largest Christian church in the world. The church was constructed between 2004-2007 at a cost of 80 million euros. The first stone was laid on June 6, 2004, by the now retired Bishop of the Diocese of Leiria-Fátima, Bishop Serafim Ferreira e Silva, it was the late Holy Father Pope John Paul II, that blessed and donated the first stone, on March 9th of 2004. It's a piece of marble taken from the tomb of Apostle Peter, over which the basilica with his name was built in Rome. This was only a symbolic act, as the stone was later put inside the finished church for the pilgrims to see. It was consecrated on October 12, 2007, on the occasion of the 90º anniversary of the aparitions of Fátima, by the Secretary of State of the Vatican and Legate of Holy Father Benedict XVI, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. This project is actualy being contested by some people.
