About Our Pilgrimages
For those of you who have never been to Medjugorje, you will experience one of the most spiritual, and peaceful places on earth. One of the best descriptions of Medjugorje we have ever heard is: "Medjugorje is a place where Heaven touches the earth". After visiting Medjugorje we are sure you will agree.
Why go with us? Together we have taken almost 10,000 pilgrims to Medjugorje since 1983. We specialize in small groups so each pilgrimage will be a special and personal experience. We use expert licensed local guides that are with you every day of your pilgrimage. And while we have a full schedule planned, you still have personal time, which is so important on a pilgrimage.
We will take the worry out of traveling and allow you to relax and focus on what Jesus and Our Lady have planned for you. This pilgrimage is your pilgrimage and a journey with Our Lady and we are here to do our absolute best to show you the Medjugorje that we know and love.
The visionaries in Medjugorje tell us that no one goes to Medjugorje by accident. We are called individually by Our Lady. What an awesome thought! If you feel called to go to Medjugorje then answer Our Lady's invitation! Traveling to Medjugorje is truly a life changing experience, and one that you will remember for the rest of your life!
* Sample Day by Day Itineray. Actual Itinerary Can Vary.
Day 1: US - Europe
Board your overnight transatlantic flights from your home town. Meals are served on board.
Day 2: Europe - Split - Medjugorje
Upon early morning arrival in Frankfurt, we will connect with our 1.5 hour flight to Split. Upon arrival, we will be greeted by our local guide Snjezana Zovko or driver who will then take you on a 2.5 hour ride by private motorcoach to the village of Medjugorje. Once there, you will be introduced to your host family where you will be staying for the next seven nights.
Day 3-8: Medjugorje
The beauty of this simple village is enhanced by the opportunity to share our faith with thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. Our local guide Snjezana will accompany you throughout the week, and will help plan your daily activities. Each evening at dinner the schedule for the following day will be posted in the dining room. Just some of the activities you will enjoy throughout the week are:
English Mass each morning at 10am at St James Church. On Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at Noon. At 5pm each evening (6pm Sep 10-May 1) we will join local villagers and pilgrims to pray the Joyful and Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary. Be present in the church during the time of the apparitions at 5:40pm (6:40 Sep 10-May 1) (although the visionaries are not present) and then stay for Croatian Mass and the Blessing of the Sick. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays there is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and on Fridays Veneration of the Cross in the church.
We will follow the same path up Apparition Hill where the young visionaries first encountered Our Lady, and pray at the statue which commemorates the spot where Our Lady first appeared to the visionaries. We will also visit and pray at "Blue Cross", which is a very special place at the base of Apparition Hill where the visionaries would meet in the early days of the apparitions to avoid the Communist police. We will have the opportunity to climb Mt. Krizevac (Cross Mountain), where in 1933 the villagers built a 29' high cross on the anniversary of Jesus' crucifixion. This Cross contains a relic from the True Cross of Christ given to the villagers by the Pope.
Depending upon schedule and availability, our local guide will arrange meetings with the local priests and visionaries as well as the community of Cenacolo.
Day 9-10: Medjugorje - Split - Europe - USA
After an early breakfast and heartfelt farewells, we leave by private motorcoach for Split Airport and our flight to Frankfurt. We typically overnight in Frankfurt, and will connect with our return flights back to the US the next morning. We are confident that your Medjugorje Pilgrimage will be a very memorable and lifechanging experience.

Since 1981, in a small village in Bosnia-Hercegovina named Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing and giving messages to the world. She tells us that God has sent Her to our world, and these years she is spending with us are a time of Grace granted by God. In Her own words She tells us, "I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God".
Our Lady continues to give messages to six people from the village of Medjugorje: Ivan, Jakov, Marija, Mirjana, Vicka, and Ivanka. These six people (referred to as "visionaries") have received apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary since June 24, 1981. In addition to Her public messages, Our Lady is to give each of the six visionaries a total of ten "secrets" or happenings that will occur on earth in the near future. Some of the secrets pertain to the whole world while others concern the visionaries themselves or the local village. Only one of the secrets has so far been revealed by the visionaries. In the third secret Our Lady has promised to leave a supernatural, indestructible, and visible sign on the mountain where she first appeared. Our Lady said: "This sign will be given for the atheists. You faithful already have signs and you have become the sign for the atheists. You faithful must not wait for the sign before you convert; convert soon. This time is a time of grace for you. You can never thank God enough for His grace. The time is for deepening your faith, and for your conversion. When the sign comes, it will be too late for many."
