Medjugorje Pilgrimage Tour

(17 Reviews)

The Medjugorje Pilgrimage Tour spends one week in the peaceful mountain hamlet where the Virgin Mary has been appearing since June 25, 1981. After arriving in Dubrovnik, Split, or Sarajevo, you will be met by a local guide from Medjugorje who will bring you back to his home village recounting the story of Our Lady’s first apparitions along the way. You will attend Mass and pray the Rosary daily with the villagers and other pilgrims from around the world at St. James Church.  During the Medjugorje Pilgrimage Tour, you will have the opportunity to climb Apparition Hill where Our Lady first appeared, and to make the Way of the Cross as you ascend Cross Mountain. Your guide for the Medjugorje Pilgrimage Tour will arrange for you to meet any of the visionaries who are in the village at the time and to hear young men from the Cenacolo community share their stories of conversion and witness to the healing power of Faith. It is said that Our Lady invites all her Children to Medjugorje to lead them to a closer relationship with Her Son, Jesus, and to exhort us to Pray for Peace in our hearts, in our homes, and in our communities.

Amazing Journey with Christ! Jimmy provided everything in just a few short days to accommodate Todd St. Romain and myself! I was in the middle of my treatment for prostate cancer! I felt as if GOD was leading me to Medjugorje!!! During my prayer time it was as if God spoke to me to go to Medjugorje with my friend Todd St. Romain!! Even though that my radiation effects from my treatments were of the most difficult at the time!! Often times God offers reassurances when he ask us to do things that seem impossible at the time! Following my prayer time as I was driving to Mass I saw a homeless man! I stopped gave him some money along with a Miraculous Medal and a prayer book! He said relic! I said what did you say??? Relic!!! Do you know what a relic is?? Something special from God!! I reach in my bag where I had relics of the True Cross of Jesus and the relic of St Catherine Laboure’ OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL!! This from the Trinity Ministry where we offer veneration of relics at school and churches throughout Louisiana!! I got out of my truck and prayed with the homeless man! When entering my truck I could smell him on my arm!! I felt as if God wanted me to leave that smell on my arm!! The night before we saw the Mother Theresa movie about her life!! That smell is probably the smell that Mother Theresa encountered everyday in her ministry!!
Amazingly, in two days Jimmy had business class tickets lined up with all accommodations arrange for our trip to Medjugorje!! Business class because of my prostate treatment and Todd’s severe neck and back issues! DRAGAN was an amazing guide!! THE EXPERIENCES ON THIS TRIP ARE TO MANY TO JUSTIFY IN THIS EMAIL!! Yet, Jimmy I would be glad to allow you to share Todd and my journals of our trip to Medjugorje!! THIS IS AN AMAZING MINISTRY THAT YOU ARE SPREADING FOR SO MANY AROUND THE WORLD!!! THIS TRIP WAS TRULY PREORDAINED BY GOD!! JIMMY WAS HIS INSTRUMENT!!!!

Jimmy, my pilgrimage to Medjugorje couldn’t have been any better. Airport transportation was excellent and seamless. The Grace Hotel was located across the street from St. James Church. This location is perfect for all the activities. Slavenka, our expert guide was amazing. She lived it and knew the visionaries personally.

While staying in Medjugorje I experienced total peace, the way the world should be. Everyone was so friendly and happy. The food at the hotel was excellent and abundant as was the wine. I had a very deep spiritual experience at top of apparition hill as well as cross mountain. I felt so entuned with myself and God. It was amazing. I would very highly recommend anyone wanting the Medjugorje experience to book through you.

Abundant blessings and thanks,

An amazingly deep spiritual experience in Medjugorje. Thank you Catholic Journeys. The guides were a wealth of information and are personal lifelong friends of the visionaries. The hotel was at the perfect location and very clean, just right. Food was excellent. Nothing but my highest rating. Thank you, I’ll be back.

I have to say this was very different than the other three pilgrimages I been on in 1989, 90 and 91. Everything has grown but the atmosphere and the people praying are still the same. While on the plane I was very nervous on how all of the these arrangements were going to come together since we do not know one another and how we were going to meet up at the airport in Split.
While in line in customs, there standing next to me were the other four people and then Dragon, our assigned tour guide met us outside the customs office. Everything fell into place. Dragon showed us the country side and gave a great history lesson of the area and what we were going to experience. We went to Maria’s retreat center and after going to our rooms and freshening up we all gathered on the patio. Maria came out to join us. She was so gracious and she allowed us ask questions of her family and she answered some questions of Our Ladies apparitions. What was different this time Dragon, who I had as a tour guide before, took us outside the village to get away from the crowds where we had dinner on a river where the locals hang out. It was so delicious I could have eaten there all day and night. The next day we had Mass in the Divine Mercy Chapel where the relics of Saint Sister Faustiana and Saint John Paul II are located. The chapel is an hour or two away. I was able to celebrate Mass there and bless our group with the relics of these two wonderful saints. That alone was a gift from the Blessed Mother. I never expected that at all.
The crowds were very heavy because of the anniversary, so we had Mass in the village twice, the second day we arrived and the last day which was a Sunday and the other days of the week we had Mass in Maria’s Chapel downstairs. We meet so many wonderful people who were there. Some Americans who own property in Medjugorje and people from all over the world. It was just fantastic. The four people I was with were outstanding, fun, energetic, prayerful and just great to be around. The shops were larger and many more of them located all around Saint James Church. I want to thank you Father Paul and Jimmy, of course the whole team at Catholic Journeys for the best experience of my life.
