Lourdes and Medjugorje Pilgrimage with Fr. Angelo Casimiro, MIC

September 24 - October 7, 2019

Visit two famous spiritual pilgrimage locations: Lourdes, in France, where Our Lady appeared in 1858, and Medjugorje, in Bosnia-Hercegovina, site of alleged Marian apparitions since the 1980s. Father Angelo Casimiro, MIC, will lead the pilgrimage.

SEPT 26-OCT. 3 — MEDJUGORJE — Medjugorje is a simple mountain village. Experience its beauty, spirituality, and peace. During our stay, we will share our faith with thousands of people from all over the world. Each morning at 10 a.m., we meet at St. James Church for the English language Mass (feast days and Sundays English Mass is at noon). Our local bilingual tour guide will escort us to the Hill of Apparitions where the alleged visionaries reportedly first saw Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Pray before the statue that symbolizes the place of the first alleged apparition. In 1933, the villagers built a 30-foot-high cross on the anniversary of Jesus’ Crucifixion on top of Cross Mountain (Krizevac). We will climb the mountain through the Stations of the Cross. Also, visit and pray at “Blue Cross.” A place of healings and graces at the foot of Apparition Hill. We will have the chance to attend meetings and talks with the alleged visionaries (subject to their availability and health during our trip). We will also visit the community of Cenacolo (a rehab center). In the evening, we can join the villagers at 5 p.m. (or 6 p.m. daylight savings time) to pray the Rosary. Followed by the International Mass during which there is the blessing of the items you have with you. Adoration takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays later in the evening, and veneration of the Holy Cross takes place on Fridays later in the evening. We will also have time for personal prayer and reflection.
