Medjugorje and Fr. Zlatko Sudac Retreat
Pilgrimage directed by Ann Vucic
Pilgrims on this combined pilgrimage-retreat will enjoy the guidance and leadership of Ann Vucic, early witness to the Medjugorje apparitions. Born just two miles away from Medjugorje, Ann’s family immigrated to the United States when she was two years old. They returned to their homeland to visit relatives in 1981, and were there when the Blessed Mother began appearing to six children in Medjugorje. Hearing of the apparitions, Ann and her family rushed to the site, where Ann became an early witness to the appearances. Her life forever changed, she is now dedicated to sharing the story of Medjugorje and encouraging others to grow in love for Our Lady and her Son.
