Pilgrimage to Medjugorje includes a detailed religious programme, including English Mass every morning, evening ceremonies and visits to the sanctuary’s most important places such as the Blue Cross, Apparition Hill, Mount Krizevac, Cennacolo Community and the Community of the Oasis of Peace.  All of this with the support of our knowledgeable team in Medjugorje, led by Philip Ryan.
