Our Medjugorje pilgrimage will be filled with the prayer, daily morning English speaking Holy Mass and in the evening at the time of the apparition of Our Lady International Mass and prayer of the Rosary. This will be a real spiritual retreat, and your life for a few days will go to the triangle of Podbrdo (Apparition Hill), St. James church and Krizevac (Cross Mountain).

With thousands of pilgrims from all over the world, you will celebrate daily mass at St. James church. Visiting Bijakovici village, all six visionaries come from it; you will go up the Apparition Hill, Podbrdo place where Our Lady first appeared.    Holy Rosary is prayed during the evening program with Mass; Our Lady repeated many times how important is to come to mass where “we meet Jesus alive.” Messages of Prayer of the Rosary, Holy Mass, and Confession are the center of the evening program at St. James church. According to the three visionaries they still every day receive the apparition of Our Lady, pray with her and are blessed by Gospa daily! The apparition takes place at 5:40 pm or 6:40 daylight savings time, and Vicka, Ivan and Marija are the ones who experience this daily. 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 Croats call it, visit the “Blue Cross,” another place of the apparition. Each pilgrim will have time for private devotions, shopping, or simply enjoying your “freedom of prayer” as Rosary in the hands of people you see on the streets or in the fields in Medjugorje aren't a strange thing!
