Divine Mercy Pilgrimage
 to Poland & Medjugorje

June 4-16, 2018

with Group Leader Terri Smith
& Fr. Mike Snyder, Spiritual Director

Proposed Itinerary

Day 1 – New Orleans - Krakow
Depart New Orleans for your connecting flights to Krakow. Dinner and breakfast will be served aboard transatlantic flight.

Day 2 - Krakow
Upon arrival in Krakow Airport you will find your luggage and exit into the arrivals hall where you will meet your tour guide and board your private motorcoach and transfer to your hotel. In the afternoon, we will visit Krakow's Market Square and hear the silver trumpet of the bugler from St. Mary's Tower. We will then have Mass of Thanksgiving inside St. Mary’s Basilica, followed by a dinner in a nearby restaurant. Overnight in Krakow.

Day 3 - Krakow – Divine Mercy Shrine
Today we will visit Lagiewniki, the capital of the Divine Mercy. It was here that the message of the Divine Mercy originated, which Christ Himself wished to pass on to our generation through the mediation of St. Faustina. Here we will see the image of the Merciful Jesus and have Mass at the convent chapel near the tomb of St Faustina. In the afternoon, we will also visit the Shrine of Divinity dedicated by St. John Paul II on his last visit to Poland in 2002 and visit the new center "Have no Fear" where we pray by the relic of St. John Paul II. Return to hotel in Krakow for dinner and overnight.

Day 4 – FULL DAY Excursion to Czestochowa
After breakfast we will travel north to Czestochowa, home of the greatest pilgrimage shrine in Poland. We will have Mass at Jasna Gora Monastery where the Miraculous Icon of the Black Madonna is located, and where St. John Paul II was known to make frequent visits throughout his life. After time for prayer and lunch, we will view the priceless treasures located in the Museum before traveling back to Krakow.

Day 5 - Auschwitz - Wadowice
This morning we will travel to Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp where unspeakable atrocities occurred. We will see the cell that imprisoned St. Maximillian Kolbe and the Martyrdom Museum recalling the horrors of the Holocaust. In the afternoon we will go to Wadowice, the birthplace of Karol Wojtyla (St. John Paul II) and celebrate Mass in the church he attended and in which he was baptized as a child. We will visit his childhood home, now a museum containing relics and artifacts from throughout his life, before returning to Krakow for dinner and overnight.

Day 6 - Krakow - Medjugorje
After breakfast, we depart for Krakow Airport for your connecting flights to Sarajevo. Upon arrival you will be greeted by your Guide who will accompany you to Medjugorje and recount the story of Our Lady’s Apparitions along the way. Dinner and overnight in Medjugorje.

Day 7 to 12 - 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 out-side 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.

    Prayer at the Statue of the Risen 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.
