Feed my sheep...

Medjugorje parishoners are providing free hospitality and accommodation this weekend to around 4,000 pilgrims from Eastern Europe who otherwise would not be able to afford to visit Medjugorje because of the poor financial state of their families..

“The Joy of Communion” project was undertaken by the parish in thanksgiving for all the years of grace at Medjugorje and as a concrete response to the Holy Father’s proclaimed year of New Evangelisation.

Pilgrims from Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Albania, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina began gathering in Medjugorje from the early hours of Friday morning.
