Medjugorje Youth Festival Pilgrimage

Medjugorje 40th Anniversary

It all began on June 24th, 1981 when 2 girls (15 & 16 years old) claimed to have seen Our Lady on a hillside. The next day, the 25th, they returned with others and 6 children began having daily apparitions (read more here). We will be visiting Medjugorje on the 40th anniversary of these events, where Our Lady, the Queen of Peace, is still said to be visiting. We hope that you are able to join us on this historic and life changing pilgrimage!

Medjugorje 40th Anniversary Pilgrimage Dates

The trip is planned for June 16th - 30th, 2020. Most of us will be flying out of Seattle (with many traveling together from the Portland area), but all are welcome to join us no matter where you live. Contact us for details.

Pilgrimage Plan

Lodging

We will be staying at Dragan (Ivan's brother) and Haunita's Pansion.  This beautiful home is in a great location nearby the blue cross, visionaries, apparition hill, and easy walking distance to St. James, Cross Mountain and other popular sites in Medjugorje.  Each room is very clean, and has its own bathroom & shower.  And, of course, Dragan and Huanita are amazing hosts!

Cost

The pilgrimage cost estimate is about $1900.  This includes airfare + lodging + food (2 meals per day) + ground transportation. You will pay the actual cost (no tour operator markup, we are volunteer-run).

Guide

We will hire a professional local guide to ensure you have access to a wealth of information about all Medjugorje has to offer. Our guide also provides access to talks with the visionaries (or other events) when available, access to the orphanages, The Castle, and other sites that otherwise are not be easily accessible. While our guide will be available most days, you are also welcome to spend time on your own too when you want (an important part of Medjugorje for most people).
