You will have a chance to participate in many activities during your stay in Medjugorje.  With pilgrims from all over the world, you will celebrate daily mass at St. James Church, for English speaking pilgrims it is at 10:00 am, on feast days and holidays it is at noon. The Adoration of the Holy Eucharist is on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 – 10:00 pm and on Thursday right after the evening Holy Mass.

Each evening at 5:00 pm starts the prayer of the Rosary followed by evening Holy Mass at 6:00 pm! Pilgrims here pray all three Mysteries during the evening program. In Our Lady’s messages, it was 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.

Visiting Bijakovici village, all six visionaries come from it; you will go up the Apparition Hill, Podbrdo, place where Our Lady first appeared. According to their words, the Virgin Mary appears to three of them daily, to Vicka, Ivan, and Marija.  Mirjana, Jakov, and Ivanka are the three visionaries who don’t have daily apparitions but once a year. We will also as a group climb the “Cross mountain” and pray the Way of The Cross, Krizevac as local people know it, visit the “Blue Cross,” another place of the apparition of Our Lady also nearby community - Cenacolo. Each pilgrim will have time for private devotions, shopping, or simply enjoying your own “freedom of prayer.

KORCULA, CROATIA

It is believed that the greatest traveler and explorer of all time, Marco Polo, was born in Korčula in 1254.
On 07th September 1298, the great naval battle between the Genoese and the Venetian armadas took place in front of the town of Korčula.
The Venetians were defeated and the Genoese imprisoned, among whom was Marco Polo, who was freed on payment of a large ransom in 1299.
In a Genoese prison, Marco Polo dictated his experiences about his journey to China to Rustichelli. These journeys are described in the book “Il Milione”. Marko Polo died in Venice in 1324. MarkoPolo Museum Korcula  (Croatian language only)
