You will be escorted to the vehicle which will then take you on the 2 1/2 hour drive to the village of Medjugorje. Once there you will meet your fellow pilgrims.

Thu - Mon, Sept 7-11 - Medjugorje
Experience the beauty and peace of this simple village. During your stay in Medjugorje you will have the opportunity to share faith with pilgrims from all over the world. Our local guide will accompany us throughout your stay.
Here are some of the activities you'll be sharing with our fellow pilgrims:
Each morning at 10am we assemble at St. James Church for the English-language Mass (Feast days and Sundays English Mass is at Noon). Follow the path up Apparition Hill where the visionaries first encountered Our Lady. Touch and pray before the cross that commemorates the spot where Mary first appeared to the visionaries.
Each evening at 6pm, we will join the villagers and pilgrims to pray the rosary. The apparition takes place at 6:40 daylight savings time, and then stay on for Croatian Mass. Don't miss on Tuesdays and Saturdays Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and on Fridays Veneration of the Cross in the Church. Each evening during Croatian Mass, there is the Blessing of the Sick and blessing of the items you have with you.
Our guide will arrange meetings with the visionaries at their own homes provided that they are in Medjugorje during your trip, and pending their availability. 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. Visit and pray at "Blue Cross", which is a place of great healings and graces- a very special place at the base of Apparition Hill. We will also visit the community of Cenacolo.
Tue, Sept 12 - Dubrovnik
After an early breakfast we will transfer to Dubrovnik. Upon arrival in this city fronting the Adriatic, you will enjoy a walking tour of the "Old City!" Your tour will begin at St. Blasius' Church, dedicated to the Patron Saint of Dubrovnik. This Baroque styled church was constructed by Venetian architect, Marino Gropelli in 1715. It was styled after the Venetian Church, St. Mauritius. You will know that you have reached this master piece by its large staircase leading to the main portal and its large dorm that decorates the roof. Your tour will continue to the Gothic and Renaissance styled, Rector's Palace. The palace is home to the history department of the museum of Dubrovnik. Following, you will stroll by the iconic Bell Tower clock and Orlando's Column. To the left of this column, you will see Sponza Palace. In the sixteenth century, members of the Academia dei Concordi met in the palace's first floor hall to discuss literature. As a result, the palace is the most important cultural institution of Dubrovnik. Lastly, you will visit the Dominican and Franciscan Monasteries. The location of the Dominican Monastery is strategically placed at the most sensitive point of Dubrovnik's defense barriers. While at the Franciscan Monastery, you will have the opportunity to visit the Pharmacy. The founding of this Pharmacy was collaborative as it served as the public pharmacy and for the needs of the monks. This afternoon, you will enjoy lunch on own at one of the many small, family-owned restaurants along the narrow streets. This evening, you will eat dinner with your group and enjoy an overnight in Dubrovnik.
Wed, Sept 13- Dubrovnik - U.S.
After an early breakfast and heartfelt farewells, we depart for Dubrovnik Airport for return flights home.

About your trip
On June 25, 1981, in the mountain village of Medjugorje in Herzegovina, Our Lady allegedly appeared to six children. She identified herself as the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace, and continues to allegedly appear to several of the visionaries. Her mission is to promote peace with God and mankind, through her Son, Jesus. Mary's own words to the children explained, "I have come to tell the world that God exists." 206 Tours has been arranging pilgrimages to Medjugorje since 1985.
