Pilgrimage to Medjugorje


Pilgrimage to Medjugorje, a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina close to the border with Croatia, has been taking place since the 1980s when six local children reported visions of Our Lady.

Approximately one million people visit Medjugorje sanctuary each year, looking to experience this unique place of spirituality and peace.

At Joe Walsh Tours, we have a regular programme of pilgrimage to Medjugorje tours with departures from Ireland and the UK.

While on pilgrimage, your group will be looked after by our highly qualified and experienced team of representatives providing local support and making sure that everything runs smoothly from start to finish.

Pilgrims travelling to Medjugorje with Joe Walsh Tours can choose from short breaks to week-long pilgrimages, all of them including a detailed religious programme coordinated by our dedicated and experienced team in Bosnia, led by Philip Ryan, expert on the sanctuary and the region.

You can also combine your pilgrimage to Medjugorje with a few days relaxing and sightseeing in spectacular Dubrovnik and Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Coast.

THE STORY OF MEDJUGORJE


Why Medjugorje?

Our Lady appeared to Ivan, Jakov, Marija, Mirjana, Vicka and Ivanka on 24th June 1981 on the place known as Apparition Hill. She had a message of peace and has continued to appear to some of the visionaries daily for many years sharing with them important messages.

These apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje, also known as Queen of Peace, still take place today, although less regularly.

Saint James Church and Apparition Hill are the two main places of worship at Medjugorje. Apparition Hill is often climbed by pilgrims visiting the sanctuary and, along the path, a wooden cross marks the site where the Blessed Virgin made the first call to peace in 1981.

Pilgrimages to Medjugorje have been authorised by the Vatican since 2019.
