YOU’RE INVITED

It starts with a stirring…an ache…a longing to withdraw from the everyday and grow closer to Our Lord. Our Blessed Mother invites you to visit one of the most spiritual and peaceful places on the planet, a place of spiritual growth and conversion where she still appears today. The visionaries tell us that no one goes to Medjugorje by accident.

The Church's Response

In 2010, Pope Benedict established a commission to investigate Medjugorje and to make recommendations regarding the authenticity of its events (commonly called The Ruini Commission). The commission completed its work in 2014, and it was later revealed that the commission recommended that the first seven days of the apparitions be approved. We are still waiting on the Holy Father to make a decision regarding the recommendations of the commission, however, Pope Francis has authorized pilgrimage to Medjugorje for parish priests and dioceses.

About Ann Vucic

Your pilgrimage director

Image
Ann Vucic was born in a village a few miles from Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Her family left communist Yugoslavia when she was two years old and settled in Chicago. In the summer of 1981, at the age of fifteen, Ann returned to her homeland for a summer vacation and shortly after that, the apparitions of Our Lady began. Ann witnessed the beginning days and months of Our Lady's apparitions in Medjugorje. This led to a radical conversion in her life, and a burning desire to help others encounter that same transformative power of God.

Upon completing bachelor’s degrees in Theology and Psychology and a master’s degree in Social Work, Ann worked as a social worker for many years. In 1999, she left her career to pursue her passion, evangelization. Her ministry has led her in many directions: organizing and leading pilgrimages and retreats; interpreting for Medjugorje visionaries and priests throughout the USA and beyond; sharing her personal testimony; speaking about Medjugorje and other faith-related topics at retreats, conferences, and parishes around the country. She also hosts a radio show on “Radio Maria USA” called Medjugorje: Message of Hope for the World.

Most recently, Ann was asked to be the consultant and Executive Producer on a major Hollywood motion picture about Medjugorje, currently in pre-production. This is an exciting project, whose goal is to bring the message of Medjugorje to millions of people all over the world.

Ann’s experience as one of the earliest witnesses to the events in Medjugorje gives her a unique perspective, which few people have, on the apparitions and their significance for our times. Her powerful testimony, engaging delivery, as well as her expertise on the subject, will captivate and inspire you.
