Among the numerous pilgrim groups who came to Medjugorje, there was a group from Kierlikowka (Poland). Twenty-four workers of the ASGA factory, together with the owners of the company, Anna and Stanislaw Lukasik, visited Medjugorje from the 15th to the 23rd of September, 2007. ASGA specializes in sewing liturgical vestments and employs 32 workers.
This wasn’t their first pilgrimage together. They had already visited Rome, and they often visit famous Polish shrines together. When the late Pope John Paul II visited Poland in 2002, they presented him with a chasuble.
This particular pilgrimage was entirely financed by the factory.
