-----Proposed Itinerary-----
Day 1 - Depart USA
Board your overnight flight from New Orleans with meals served on board.

Day 2 - Arrive Medjugorje
Transfer to your connecting flight to Dubrovnik or Split where you will be greeted by your tour guide and driver. Board your private motorcoach, for your
2.5 hour drive to the village of Medjugorje. This guide will be with you throughout your stay in Me- djugorje. Once there, you will have dinner and be introduced to your host family in who’s modern and comfortable guest house you will be staying for the next seven nights.

Days 3 to 7 - Medjugorje
Experience the beauty and peace of this simple vil- lage. During your stay in Medjugorje you will have the opportunity to share faith with thousands of pil- grims from all over the world. Your local guide will accompany you throughout the week. Here are some of the activities you will be sharing with your fellow pilgrims: Each morning at 10am you assemble at St James Church for the English-language Mass (Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at Noon). Follow the same path up Apparition Hill where the young visionaries first encountered Our Lady. Each evening at 6pm you will join the villagers and pil- grims to pray the rosary, and then stay for Croa- tian Mass immediately following. The apparition takes place at 6:40pm. Don’t miss the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Saturday, and the Veneration of the Cross in the Church on Fridays. Each evening during Croatian Mass, there is the Blessing of the Sick and blessing of the religious items you have with you. Your guide will arrange meetings with the visionaries as they are available. You will have the opportunity to climb Krizevac Mountain, where in 1933 the villagers built a 30' high cross on the 1900th anniversary of Jesus’ cru- cifixion. and pray at “Blue Cross”, which is a place of great healings and graces- a very special place at the base of Apparition Hill.

Day 8 - Medjugorje - USA
After an early breakfast and heartfelt farewells, you will leave by motorcoach for Dubrovnik Airport for your return flights home.
