Risen Christ Statue in Medjugorje

Medjugorje has changed the lives of millions of pilgrims, drawing attention of Pope Francis who acknowledged "the abundant fruits of grace that have sprung up from it". St. Pope John Paul II was reported to have said: "Medjugorje, it's the spiritual heart of the world". For those in the United States, it may seem difficult to visit Medjugorje, but it can be both easy and affordable.

Our next pilgrimage to Medjugorje will be March 22nd - April 1st, 2023. You are invited to join! The pilgrimage will include flights, ground transportation, local guide, meals, housing -- pretty much everything. You can focus on prayer, getting closer to God, and experiencing Medjugorje peace. As volunteers, we keep costs low - our goal is to help everyone visit, and as Mirjana might say: to know the love of God.

If our dates do not work for you, we are happy to help you plan your own trip. Alternatively, several tour companies provide other dates and can guide you on your pilgrimage. Our friends from Center for Peace West (Beaverton, OR) also organize pilgrimages, so be sure to check them out!
