Medjugorje is a special place visited by thousands of pilgrims each year in search of the spirituality and serenity that exists here.
Six children from this small village located in the southwest of Bosnia and Herzegovina reported a series of visions of Our Lady that began on 24 June 1981 and still continue today. These visionaries, Ivan, Jakov, Marija, Mirjana, Vicka and Ivanka report that Our Lady’s mission is one of peace and love and that she tells us “I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God”.
The St. James’s Church is the central place of worship in Medjugorje and its outside altar, built to hold large celebrations and festivals, can accommodate over five thousand people. The Apparition Hill, site of the first apparitions, is climbed by most pilgrims. Along the path, a wooden cross marks the site where the Virgin made the first call to peace.
Pilgrims travelling to Medjugorje can choose from short breaks to week-long pilgrimages , all of which include a full religious programme coordinated locally by our experienced team of representatives. We have weekly departures from Ireland between Easter and October and departures on selected dates during the low season.
