Sample Day to Day Itinerary
Day 1 - Depart USA Board your overnight transatlantic flight(s).
Day 2 Ė Transfer to Medjugorje After an early morning arrival in Europe, you will connect flight(s) to Split (Dubrovnik or Sarajevo). Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a tour guide and driver who will then take you on the 2 1/2 hour drive by private motor coach to the village of Medjugorje, driving along the Adriatic Sea and its coast of ďA Thousand IslandsĒ. Sit back and enjoy. When you arrive, you will be introduced to Ivan and his family in whose modern and comfortable house you will be staying. After getting settled in your rooms, Ivan and his family will join you for dinner, and talk with you about the schedule for the following day and the week ahead.
Days 3 to 8 - Medjugorje Experience the beauty and peace of this simple village. During your stay in Medjugorje you will have the opportunity to share our faith with thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. Our local guide will accompany us throughout the week. As Prayer Experience Pilgrims, you will begin each morning with hot home- cooked breakfast followed by Morning Prayer, led by Ivan in his home chapel. Ivan will decide the prayers or scripture readings for each day. If there is a particular intention that our Blessed Mother has asked us to pray for, then we pray for that intention. Following Morning Prayer is English Mass at St. James Church. Each day after Mass, the group will have something scheduled. Some events planned during your pilgrimage include but are not limited to:
Climbing Mt. Krizevac, the Hill of the Cross, at whose summit there is a three ton cement Cross built in 1933 to commemorate the 19th centenary of our Lordís Passion & Death. This is an intimate and prayerful experience praying the Stations of the Cross as you climb. The Stations are marked by beautiful bronze plaques along the pathway.
Visits to the other visionariesí homes will depend on their availability. We hope to arrange visits with all the visionaries who are in Medjugorje during the time you are there.
Visit to Cennacolo, which is a community for recovering addicts, who use only prayer, fasting and physical work to heal from their addictions. This is a very powerful encounter.
Visit to Fr. Jozoís Parish. Fr. Jozo was the priest the visionaries turned to after the first apparition.
One of the days, Ivan will take the group on a special private tour to relive the first days of the apparitions.
At 3:00pm there is usually a presentation in English at the Church.
Dinner will be late afternoon (4:00/5:00pm). Ivan & his family will join you for dinner each night. Following dinner all of the pilgrims gather in Ivanís chapel or at St. James Church to pray the rosary in preparation for our Blessed Motherís apparition at 6:40pm. WE CANNOT PROMISE THAT THE GROUP WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND AN APPARITION WITH IVAN, simply because we are not sure when our Blessed Mother will stop appearing to him. We must also respect the requests of the parish priests in Medjugorje if they request for Ivan to have his apparition elsewhere. Ivan does try to give each group an opportunity to be with him during an apparition if possible.
Following the rosary is the International Mass for all of the pilgrims from around the world. Following Mass each evening are prayers for healing. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament or Exultation of the Cross.
Sometimes Ivan will invite all of the pilgrims to his prayer group that meets twice a week in the evening on Apparition Hill. Ivan receives a second apparition on those days during his prayer group.
Confessions are available throughout the day. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament daily in the Adoration chapel from 1pm-6pm. Every Wednesday & Saturday there is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 10pm-11pm.
We will have certain times set aside for Ivan to speak to the group and for the group to share their experiences or questions. You will become part of our family during your stay. Sitting on the porch talking, playing with the kids, etc. The Dragicevic family will do their best to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We suggest you plan to use your time well. Take time for yourself and God. Our home chapel is available to you all day & night. Spend some time alone in prayer. Our Blessed Mother has called you here for a special reason, to meet her Son, and They have a special plan for you, so time alone is important.
Day 9 - Medjugorje - USA After an early breakfast and heartfelt farewells, we leave by motor coach for return flights home.
