Pilgrimage to Medjugorje & Dubrovnik - October 4, 2019
Medjugorje | Dubrovnik
Pilgrims will travel to the small village of Medjugorje, in BosniaHerzegovina, where the Mother of God has allegedly been appearing daily since June 24, 1981.
Six young people from this village state that the Blessed Virgin Mary has appeared to them, and that she has come to this remote part of the world to bring messages of peace and conversion for all people. In her messages, she stresses the need for each person to turn their hearts back to God. She urges all of us to place God first in our lives and in our families, and she gives us the methods for doing this; daily conversion, prayer of the heart, fasting, penance, Mass, monthly Confession, reading the Holy Bible and living it.
Pilgrims will spend 7 days in Medjugorje, participating in the daily spiritual life of St. James Church, which includes the English Mass, the evening program of prayer and adoration as well as additional activities as outlined in the itinerary.
Medjugorje is not just a pilgrimage, it’s an immersion experience into a rhythm of prayer in a setting steeped in the Lord’s peace. Many have said that it is the closest to heaven on earth that they have experienced.
At the end of our Medjugorje pilgrimage, we will spend 2 days exploring the coastal town of Dubrovnik.
