Our pilgrimage begins as we depart on our transatlantic flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Arrive Split Airport in the afternoon. Transfer to Medjugorje. Dinner and overnight in your hotel.
Medjugorje is a simple mountain village. Experience its beauty, spirituality, and peace. During our stay, we will share our faith with thousands of people from all over the world. Each morning at 10:00am, we meet at St. James Church for the English language Mass (Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at noon). Our local bilingual tour guide will escort us to the Hill of Apparitions where the visionaries first saw Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Pray before the statue that symbolizes the place of the first apparition. In 1933 the villagers built a 30’ high cross on the anniversary of Jesus’ crucifixion on top of Cross Mountain (Krizevac). We will climb the mountain through the Stations of the Cross. Also, visit and pray at “Blue Cross”. A place of healings and graces at the foot of Apparition Hill. We will have the chance to attend meetings and talks with the visionaries (subject to their availability and health during our trip). We will also visit the community of Cenacolo (a rehab center).
In the evening, we can join the villagers at 5:00pm (or 6:00pm daylight savings time) to pray the rosary. Followed by Croatian Mass during which there is the blessing of the items you have with you.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament or Veneration of The Cross takes place after the evening Croatian Mass, except on Wednesday and Saturdays. We will also have time for personal prayer and reflection.
Morning transfer to Dubrovnik. Enjoy a walking sightseeing tour of Dubrovnik, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. Visit one of the world’s oldest pharmacies, the medieval walls, the rector’s place, monasteries, the harbor, and St. Blaise’s Basilica. Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik.
Early departure to the airport to catch our return flight back home.
