      About this trip

      On June 24, 1981 six children witnessed the Blessed Virgin Mary on what is now known as Apparition Hill in the peaceful and historical town of Medjugorje. The apparition had a message of peace for the world, as well as a call to conversion, prayer and fasting. Mike Nolan, who first traveled to Medjugorje in 1990, has been leading pilgrims there since 2005. On May 13, 2019 the Holy See officially announced that Dioceses and Parishes throughout the world are now authorized to organized Pilgrimages to Medjugorje. To date, over 40+ million people have visited this peaceful Pilgrimage site.

      The most beautiful features of Medjugorje are its simplicity and peace, the presence of Our Lady. Medjugorje is a place where the veil between heaven and earth is very thin. In this sacred place, Our Lady will bring her healing, invite you under her mantle to learn prayer with the heart, and draw you close to her son.  Mike Nolan will lead pilgrims to embrace their identity as beloved children of God, who, filled with the glory of God, are commissioned to carry her message of peace to the world. Mike, emphasizing the power of the Holy Spirit, activates your gifts to walk boldly as a disciple.

      Fr. Svet says in his book entitled Pilgrimage, “A pilgrimage is a journey, assigned by God. It brings the pilgrim not only to a physical place, but out of himself, and into the presence of God. All else falls away. There is only the child, his Father, and eternity…” This is really why we are being called to make such a journey. A “body language” that speaks loudly and clearly to God. “Father, I want to know you!”

      We had a great pilgrimage/retreat. The weather was great. The lodging and location was very convenient for walking anywhere you wanted to go around town and to apparition hill. The food was well done and plenty. I don't think anyone went away hungry. A really nice group of people. The leadership team were wonderful to work with. They did a great job of herding so many people and getting them where they needed to go. There were alot of laughs, praise and worship, great teachings. The schedule was flexible enough for down time, alone time, on your on time or being with the group. Each participant could pretty much decide to choose your own adventure each day. There was plenty of time for prayer and interaction with others. I think the teachings enriched the experience so that it was a real retreat with the Lord and our Lady. I hope many people take the opportunity to do this type of trip for themselves to go deeper in their relationship with God..

      Our trip to Medjudgorje was wonderful The people we traveled with were delightful, and helped us “bond” With morning singing , insights and prayers. The hotel accommodation were great … very relaxing and food was healthy, delicious and plentiful! Toni and his family were very gracious and I know enjoyed having us! The best part was being together and sharing the profound PILGRIM CHURCH from all over the world as we prayed and came to love Jesus, Mary and St Joseph even more! Now we have even more friends and “family members” in our community to pray for and with!

      Thank you so much for the opportunity to join you for the October Pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Our family including our two adult children were immersed in our Lady's school of prayer. We really appreciate how you embraced our family and made us feel welcomed and loved. We were bathed in the waters of prayer, love, peace and friendship over the 10 days as we walked the streets and roads of this Holy Oasis of Peace. Our Lady called us to join in "her playground" to rest, to peace, to learn once again to pray with the heart. It was a deeply emotional and profound experience to come after 23 years. Many tears flowed over these precious days as our Lady cleansed our hearts and souls washing away all the concerns left behind across the pond. We were so touched and will forever remember celebrating our 32nd anniversary on the Feast of Faustina and having our marriage blessed as we venerated the relics of St. Faustina and St. John Paul II under the miraculous image of the Divine Mercy at Surmanci! Just an amazing customized touch of our Lady. Climbing Apparition Hill with our children was truly life giving and deeply powerful. It felt like a footpath 23 years ago! The visit at the Community of Cenacola, The testimony of Patrick at the castle, all the holy masses, rosaries, our fellow pilgrims, Mike's morning reflections, two transformation nights just to name a few of the highlights. It was heaven on earth! Mike, Laura and Miriam you are true witnesses of sacrificial love! You are a dynamic team full of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Your holy presence and love for us will be forever seared in our hearts. We love you and can't wait to go again in the near future!
