The Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (also known as CMRI and the Fatima Crusaders) is a Catholic priestly society originating in the United States, founded in 1967. It offers the Tridentine Mass and preaches the traditional Catholic faith, rejecting the Second Vatican Council and upholds a sedevacantist position in regards to the Vatican II sect claimants to the Papacy. The society is known to promote a devotion to Our Lady of Fatima in particular and is dedicated to the Marian spirituality St. Louis de Montfort. Their headquarters is at Mount Saint Michael in Spokane, Washington.

Under their founder Bishop Francis Schuckardt, the organisation was somewhat controversial because of the erratic behaviour of this figure and the fact that he received his orders from the apostolic line of the Arnoldite Old Roman Catholic Church; though the CMRI has always expoused the traditional Catholic faith. Great efforts were made to clean up this situation and by 1984, the anti-Schuckardt faction gained control of the group. Since that time, along with the Society of St. Pius V (which itself derives from the Society of St. Pius X), they have been arguably the premier sedevacantist organisation in the country.

The present Superior General, Bishop Mark Pivarunas, derives his apostolic lineage through the line of Ngo Dinh Thuc, Archbishop of Huế in Vietnam. He was consecrated as a bishop by Bishop Moisés Carmona of Mexico in 1991. At present the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen serves 29 churches and chapels in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The organisation is growing and now has centres in Europe, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. It also operates the Mater Dei Seminary in Omaha, Nebraska, while the nuns attached to the congregation have a convent at Spokane.
