Once again, we remind organisers of pilgrimages and those who accompany the pilgrims, that without the permission of the Parish Office nobody is allowed to lead groups to the prayer places in Medjugorje (Parish church and the space around it, prayer area around the statue of the Risen Saviour, Apparition Hill, Cross Mountain, Blue Cross, cemetery etc.).
We also remind that prayer areas are spaces of silence and recollection. Those who are authorised to lead and accompany the groups are obliged to preserve the prayer atmosphere, and to respect other faithful and other groups present at the same place. Let them avoid monopolizing prayer areas (time span and volume of loudspeakers).
