Lourdes and Medjugorje Pilgrimage


This pilgrimage combines two Marian Shrines, one in the mountains of Pyrenees and one in the mountains of Herzegovina! In one place, Lourdes, Mother of God introduced herself as  Immaculate Conception only a few years after Pope Pius IX proclaimed Immaculate Conception as a doctrine of the Church! In Medjugorje, the fruits of the apparition of Our Lady where She introduced herself as a Queen of Peace. We sincerely hope that your pilgrimage to these two places where "Divine touched the ground" will be as spiritually fruitful as it was to thousands of others!
