Medjugorje Retreat

Adriatic coast

Situated by the coast of Adriatic sea is the city of Split, with it's rich history and culture, wonderful local cuisine, combined with it's unique beauty makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations. For those who like the sun and the sea will find themselves enjoying the best of both worlds.  Try a full hearty meal at local restaurants with their house wine/Loza at a very reasonable cost.  Dip in the sea, take a walk along the promenade, visit the cathedral, see the Roman ruins and the setting of Game of Thrones.

Our visit to Medjugorje includes a free excursion to Split.  On our selected itineraries, we spend 2 or 3 nights in Split giving our pilgrims ample time to unwind.

Medjugorje

A small village in Bosnia Herzegovina, 25 km (16 mi) southwest of Mosta and close to the border of Croatia is Medjugorje.  A town between mountains.  At an altitude of 200 m above sea level it has a mild Mediterranean climate.  The Roman Catholic parish consists of five neighbouring villages: Medjugorje, Bijakovi, Vionica, Miletina and Surmanci. 

In 1981, when six local children claimed they had seen visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Medjugorje has become an unapproved destination of Catholic pilgrimage.

"Our Lady of Medjugorje" is the title given to the apparition by those who believe that Mary, mother of Jesus, has been appearing from 24 June 1981 until today to six children, now adults, in Medjugorje.

Despite the fact that the Church has not yet verified the story, many pilgrims have visited Medjugorje and repeat the pilgrimage every year.  Many of our pilgrims shared their wonderful experience with us and asked us to continue organising pilgrimages (retreat).  

 

As Pope John Paul II put it ...

"Medjugorje is a place of prayers."

Thanks to it's unique setting between mountains, beautiful scenery over the Cross Mountain and the Apparition Hill, a friendly atmosphere and lack of modern-day demanding life style - Medjugorje truly is a place of prayers - a retreat!
