Board your overnight transatlantic flights from your local airport. Meals are served on board.

Day 2 | Tuesday, July 30: Arrive Medjugorje

After an early morning arrival in Europe, you will connect flights to Dubrovnik (Split or Sarajevo). Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a tour guide and/or driver who will then take you on the 2 1/2 hour drive by private coach to the village of Medjugorje. Guide will be with you throughout your stay. Once there, you’ll meet your fellow pilgrims and your spiritual leader.

Days 3 - 9 | Wednesday - Tuesday, July 31 - August 6: Medjugorje

Experience the beauty and peace of this simple village. During your stay in Medjugorje you will have the opportunity to share faith with pilgrims from all over the world. Our local guide will accompany us throughout your stay. Here are some of the activities you’ll be sharing with our fellow pilgrims: Each morning at 10am we assemble at St. James Church for the English-language Mass (Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at Noon). Follow the path up Apparition Hill where the visionaries first encountered Our Lady. Touch and pray before the cross that commemorates the spot where Mary first appeared to the visionaries. Each evening at 6:00pm we will join the villagers and pilgrims to pray the rosary. The apparition takes place at 6:40pm, and then stay on for Croatian Mass. Don’t miss on Tuesdays and Saturdays Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and on Fridays Veneration of the Cross in the Church. Each evening during Croatian Mass, there is the Blessing of the Sick and blessing of the items you have with you. Our guide will arrange meetings with the visionaries at their own homes provided that they are in Medjugorje during your trip and pending their availability. We will have the opportunity to climb Krizevac Mountain, where in 1933 the villagers built a 30′ high cross on the anniversary of Jesus’ crucifixion. Visit and pray at “Blue Cross”, which is a place of great healings and graces- a very special place at the base of Apparition Hill. We will also visit the community of Cenacolo.
