Day 2 - Arrive Medjugorje
Upon arrival at the Airport you will meet your tour guide, and board your private motorcoach for the 2 1/2 hour drive to the village of Medjugorje, where you will be introduced to your host family in whose comfortable, yet modest inn you will be staying for the next 7 nights.

Day 3 to 8 - Medjugorje
During your stay, you will experience the beauty and peace of this simple village, and have the opportunity to share your faith with pilgrims from all over the world. Here are some of the activities planned for the week:
     Daily Mass: Each morning, at 10:00am (noon on Sunday), the group will assemble at St. James Church for Mass and the blessing of religious articles immediately following.
     Climb Apparition Hill: 
Recite the Rosary while climbing the hill to the place where the visionaries first allegedly encountered Our Lady.
     Climb Mt. Krizevac (Cross Mountain): 
In 1933, the villagers built a 30' high cross atop a mountain to commemorate Jesus' passion and death on the cross. Climb to the top, stopping 15 times along the way to rest and Pray the Stations of the Cross.
     Apparitions: 
Join the villagers and fellow pilgrims in praying the Rosary in St. James Church at 6pm, and stay for the alleged apparition of Our Lady to the visionaries at 6:40pm. Stay for the Croatian Mass the Blessing of the Sick immediately following.
     Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament: 
Our Lady has always called us to be close to Her Son. Join fellow pilgrims for Adoration on Tuesday and Saturday at the outside altar of St. James Church, and for Veneration of the Cross on Friday inside the church. Adoration is also available in the Chapel every afternoon.
     Meetings with the Visionaries: 
Pending their availability, the guide will arrange meetings with the visionaries.
     Visit to the Community of Cenacolo: 
Founded by the Sisters of Charity, Cenacolo is a community for young men and women who have lost their way in life, and are on the road to recovery. We will hear their inspirational words about their journeys back to Jesus Christ.

Pray at the bronze statue located on the grounds of St. James Church, and witness the droplets of water that miraculously seep out of Christ's right knee.
