Home > Medjugorje – A prayerful retreat for your soul!

Join us on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, walk where Heaven touches Earth! Embark on this pilgrimage and allow Our Lord to open your heart. Discover something new about yourself. A pilgrimage is not a choice you make, it is a response to a call. When you step outside your comfort zone and say YES to Our Lord, He will show you a new way of seeing yourself! A new beautiful you!

This journey is different, its a pilgrimage not a tour. We will be blessed to spend a week in one spot. We won’t be spending each night in a different city and then moving on. We won’t be rushing from site to site to get it all in. We will make our home in Medjugorje for this time. Our host family will make you feel at home with their home cooked meals and hospitality, you won’t want to leave them.

So please pray and discern about this pilgrimage. Listen and wait, if you hear the call just respond! Respond with a big YES!


Excerpt from Oct 2, 2016 message to Mirjana
“That is why, you, my children, my apostles, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of my Son, so that your heart may be His home, that it may not be dark and sad, but that it may be illuminated with the light of my Son. Seek hope with faith, because faith is the life of the soul. Anew I am calling you: pray, pray to live faith in humility, in spiritual peace, and illuminated by the light.

Accommodations:

Our accommodations are carefully selected.  We will be staying at the Ambassador Hotel, which is owned and operated by an amazing family! This hotel is more than a hotel, it is a home.  The Vasilj’s hospitality will make you feel like a part of the family.  And it is there, as we gather to begin our days, that we all become part of the Medjugorje family of pilgrims. Delicious home cooked meals, breakfast and dinner are included in price. Wine with dinners, and juice, water and coffee also. You will find peace and serenity along with views of Cross Mountain. We will also be in a great location, short 300 meter walk to St. James Church and short walks to Cross Mountain and Apparition Hill. 


Preparation for your pilgrimage:

Our Lady has called you to Medjugorje, now it is time to prepare. Remember to prepare physically and spiritually. There is some walking on this pilgrimage. Most walking is at a casual pace, so be prepared for walking across vineyards, up Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain. Plenty of time to rest as we pray and walk. If you can walk a mile a day, you should be fine. Attend daily Mass and try to find some quiet time at Adoration. If you don’t know how to pray the Rosary, no worries. This is a beautiful prayer and we will be praying this on our pilgrimage. Learn it before or learn it in Medjugorje. Our Lady first requested the visionaries to pray a peace rosary, this is the Apostles Creed, 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Mary’s and 7 Glory Be’s. Start there. The most important preparation, Open your Heart and your Mind to receive all the gifts and graces Our Lord wants to offer you during this pilgrimage.
