Pilgrimages & Pilgrimage Retreats
Every year, nestled in the hills of Herzegovina and Bosnia, Medjugorje attracts thousands of pilgrims. Each person makes their own journey and each person has a unique story of why they feel called to this little village in eastern Europe.
The Story of Medjugorje
Since 1981, in a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina named Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing and giving messages to the world. Her message is one of peace and to draw believers closer to her Son.
Our Lady asks us to focus on the “Five Stones” to combat sin and error in our lives: Eucharist, Prayer, Fasting, Scripture, and Confession.
Since 1981 Ann has been a first-hand witness to the apparitions. Now, she serves as interpreter for the visionaries, as well as pilgrimage and retreat leader for groups coming to Medjugorje.
Our Lady, Queen of Peace, invites pilgrims to explore and devote themselves to the “Five Stones” of the Eucharist, Confession, prayer, fasting, and the Bible.
The Vatican’s Response to Medjugorje
Since 1986 when the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith stepped in regarding matters of Medjugorje multiple investigation have taken place. No reports from the Vatican have confirmed or denied the supernatural apparitions. The Vatican has welcomed private pilgrimage organized by the laity.Read the Full Article Here
In February of this year the Vatican sent a special Papal Envoy to Medjugorje.
“The mission has the aim of acquiring a deeper knowledge of the pastoral situation there and above all, of the needs of the faithful who go there in pilgrimage, and on the basis of this, to suggest possible pastoral initiatives for the future,”
– Vatican Secretariat of State
