The visionary Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez had her regular annual apparition on June 25th 2017.
At her last daily apparition on May 7, 1985, Our Lady confided to Ivanka the 10th secret and told her that she would have an apparition once a year on the anniversary of the apparitions. It was that way also this year.
Many pilgrims came walking to Medjugorje for the 36th Anniversary of Our Lady’s Apparitions and among them was a group of 30 pilgrims who walked from Rama. Their journey started on Friday, June 23, early in the morning and they came to Medjugorje on Sunday morning, on the Anniversary day.More

We were informed that some people are selling mass intentions from Medjugorje parish office on their web sites. This is huge misuse of the most sacred offering of Holy Mass and major fraud at the same time. Thereby, we would kindly like to ask you to be aware of this matter and not to support it by any means. If you happen to find out about similar activities of some other people involved in this, we would appreciate if you could notify us promptly about that.
