18th Annual IIPG Pilgrimage, June 1-10, 2017

Travel to Medjugorje for the Annual IIPG Queen of Peace prayer group pilgrimage. Everyone is welcome! The IIPG prayer group was established in 1999 by Nedjo, one of the members of Ivan's prayer group. For those of you who have never been to Medjugorje, you will experience one of the most spiritual, and peaceful places on earth.

One of the best descriptions of Medjugorje we have ever heard is: "Medjugorje is a place where Heaven touches the earth". After visiting Medjugorje we are sure you will agree. We will be in Medjugorje for the IIPG Prayer Group Anniversary on June 4th, and will celebrate with some special prayers and events.

We have been leading pilgrimages to Medjugorje since the 80's to present, and offer 12 pilgrimages per year. We arrange for excellent accommodations in Medjugorje, and will be providing a full and complete itinerary of events throughout the trip. We will have our local guide, Snjezana Zovko, from Medjugorje assisting the group as well.

The visionaries in Medjugorje tell us that no one goes to Medjugorje by accident. We are called individually by Our Lady. What an awesome thought! If you feel called to go to Medjugorje then answer Our Lady's invitation! Traveling to Medjugorje is truly a life changing experience!

We look forward to meeting you!
Steve and Ana Shawl

Sample Itinerary:

Day 2 - Europe/Split/Medjugorje
Upon early morning arrival in Frankfurt you will connect with your flight to Split. Upon arrival in Split, you will be greeted outside baggage claim by our local guide, Snjezana Zovko, who will then accompany you on your ride to Medjugorje by private motorcoach. Once there, you will be introduced to your host family where you will be staying for the next seven nights.

Days 3-8 Medjugorje
The beauty of this simple village is enhanced by the opportunity to share our faith with thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. Ana will accompany you throughout the week, and help plan your daily activities. Each evening at dinner she will post a schedule for the following day on our dining room door. Just some of the activities you will do throughout the week are:

Each morning at 10am we assemble at St James Church for the English-language Mass. Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at Noon.

We will follow the same path up Apparition Hill where the young visionaries first encountered Our Lady. Pray before the statue which commemorates the spot where Our Lady first appeared to the visionaries. We will also visit and pray at "Blue Cross", which is a very special place at the base of Apparition Hill.

If available, we will join Ivan for his public prayer group apparition at Blue Cross or at the top of Apparition Hill

At 6pm each evening we will join the villagers and pilgrims to pray the rosary. Be present in the church during the time of the apparitions at 6:40pm (although the visionaries are not present) and then stay for the Croatian Mass and the Blessing of the Sick. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays there is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and on Fridays Veneration of the Cross in the church.

Depending upon schedule and availability, our local guide Snjezana will arrange meetings with the visionaries. You will also visit the addiction center Community Cenacolo.

We will have the opportunity to climb Krizevac Mountain, where in 1933 the villagers built a 30' high cross on the anniversary of Jesus' crucifixion. This Cross contains a relic from the actual Cross of Christ given to the villagers by the Pope.
