Medjugorje Pilgrimage 2024 & Rome Pilgrimage Tour

(1 Review)
Medjugorje pilgrimage and Rome pilgrimage into one tour!

Our Medjugorje Rome Pilgrimage Tour combines two of our most popular Catholic Pilgrimage tour destinations. Starting in Rome, the Eternal City, you will visit St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest Church in Christendom built over the burial place of St. Peter. Here you celebrate Mass in the final resting place of many former Popes and Saints. During the Medjugorje Rome Pilgrimage Tour, you will also visit the Vatican Museum which showcases the works of the world’s most renowned artists, including the magnificent ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo’s masterpiece, The Last Judgement. During the Medjugorje Rome Pilgrimage Tour, you will visit the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the Cathedral of Rome, the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, the burial place of St. Paul, and the Basilica of St. Mary Major, the largest church in the world dedicated to the Virgin Mary. A highlight of the Medjugorje Rome Pilgrimage Tour is receiving a Papal Blessing and Audience with the Pope in St. Peter’s Square if he is in Residence. In Medjugorje, the peaceful village where the Virgin Mary has been appearing since 1981, you will attend Mass in English every morning and pray the Rosary every evening with other pilgrims from around the globe at St. James Church. Climb Apparition Hill and pray at the very spot where Our Lady first appeared, and hike to the large Cross at the top of Mount Krisevac, praying at the Stations of the Cross along the way. You will have the chance to visit with any of the Visionaries that are in the village and hear firsthand about their experience and the messages they receive from the Blessed Mother.  Go ahead and book the Medjugorje Rome Pilgrimage now for 2024 or 2025!

The trip was amazing. The guides in Rome were amazing. Francesco made sure we had the best position to view Pope Francis!
