Novena in Medjugorje: A Virtual Pilgrimage
Here is our beloved guide Slavenka, inviting you to join us in this special Novena in Medjugorje: Virtual Pilgrimage!
June 24, 2020, marks the 39th Anniversary of the first Apparition of Our Lady of Medjugorje. Every year on the anniversary Pilgrims join the St. James’ Parish for a nine-day Novena for Peace, concluding with a Peace Parade.
Our guides report that there are little to no current cases of COVID-19 in Medjugorje. In an effort of caution, we postponed all our Pilgrimages until safe travel resumes. For the first time in our 35-year history, 206 Tours will not be sending any Pilgrims to Medjugorje for the Anniversary.
While we can’t be there physically, we’re excited that we can all be there virtually. From June 15 – 24th we will be posting a daily video from Medjugorje, praying the Novena with our Guides. Our wonderful guides will lead us to all our favorite places in Medjugorje like Cross Mountain, the Risen Christ Statue, Apparition Hill, and more! Each day, we will pray the Rosary together, and be united in our prayers to Our Lady, asking for Peace. Thanks be to God for technology and for our selfless guides, Slavenka, Ivanka, Ivan, Dragan, Franjo, Slavica, Niksha and Andrej, as well as Fr. Svet – and special thanks to our talented Videographer Jozo.
We ask that you send us your intentions so that our guides can carry them with this Holy journey. Email your intentions or Petitions to firstname.lastname@example.org

What is Medjugorje?
If you are not familiar with Medjugorje, here is a brief introduction! Medjugorje is a small hillside village in Bosnia and Herzegovina where Our Lady appeared to six children for the first time on June 24, 1981. Many of the visionaries, now adults, are still witnesses Apparitions of Our Lady. Affectionately referred to as Our Lady Queen of Peace, her basic message is that God is present in the world, and prayer and repentance are needed to obtain peace.
206 Tours was founded because of Medjugorje. In the early 1980s, Milanka Lachman made her first Pilgrimage to Medjugorje, and her life was transformed. She was so inspired that she felt called to create a company as a Tour Operator to serve those seeking to find God on Catholic Pilgrimage in Medjugorje and in other Sacred places all over the world.
