PILGRIMAGE TO MEDJUGORJE

A Truly Catholic Pilgrimage

On June 24, 1981, six young people from the quaint village of Medjugorje, in modern-day Bosnia-Herzegovina, claimed the Blessed Virgin Mary had appeared to them, bringing 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, and reading and living out Holy Scripture.

Pilgrims on this grace-filled pilgrimage 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 the children. Hearing of the apparitions, Ann and her family rushed to the site. 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.

Pilgrims will spend 7 full 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.
