Fatima and Medjugorje Pilgrimage - BHT0028

Fatima & Medjugorje Pilgrimage Tour

These two pilgrimage destinations, two Marian Shrines in Europe, have so much in common, apart from being a place where "Divine touched the Earth."

Two remote and poor villages Fatima and Medjugorje are on the spiritually most inspiring Catholic travel destinations.

Apparitions were granted to nine children altogether, three in Fatima and six in Medjugorje. In both places, the prayer of the Rosary comes as a critical message!  Matthew 19:14 - "Let the little children come to Me"

The prayer of the Rosary in both Marian Shrines is "The Well," where millions of pilgrims every year nourish their souls.

Come and see the culture, tradition, language, cuisine, the warm Mediterranean hospitality of two countries, and two people that share so much in common, Portugal & Croatia!
 

Have a blessed pilgrimage!

You will go up the Apparition Hill, Podbrdo place where Our Lady first appeared. On June 25th, six children from ten to sixteen were Ivan, Marija, Vicka, Jakov, Ivanka & Mirjana. Since that day, we know them as visionaries from Medjugorje. Each evening you and thousands of other pilgrims will pray the rosary of all three Mysteries during the evening program.
You are right in the heart of the place where Our Lady shared her intention to stay with "her children" on the path of Prayer, Reconciliation, Holy Mass, Fasting, and Bible - five cornerstones of the message Queen of Peace in Medjugorje! Our Lady's call for Prayer of the Rosary, Holy Mass, and Confession are the center of the evening program in St. James Church.
According to the words of three visionaries, apparition takes place every day, to three of them see Gospa daily, Vicka, Ivan, and Marija. Mirjana, Jakov, and Ivanka are the three visionaries who don’t have daily apparitions but once a year. Among other activities, you will have a chance to climb the Cross Mountain,” Krizevac as local people know it, and pray the Way of The Cross, also visit the “Blue Cross,” another site where visionaries met with Our Lady, Gospa.

During the stay in Medjugorje, each pilgrim will have time for private devotions, time for lunch, shopping, or just enjoying your “freedom of prayer” every pilgrim enjoys when in Medjugorje - "between the hills" village.

As Gospa says in Medjugorje, every time after the meeting with visionaries, "Thank you for responding to my call," we hope you will hear her call and join us on one of our pilgrimages to Medjugorje & Fatima!
