Advent – time of preparation for Christmas began on Sunday, December 1, 2013. Early Holy Masses are held in our parish church every day at 6 a.m. except on Sundays and those Holy Masses are going to be broadcasted live on radio station Mir Medjugorje. The schedule of prayer programme is the same for Croatian and foreign pilgrims. Parish Office has encouraged all families to pray more intensively together and to participate in the prayer programme that is held in the church and on hills in this special season of Advent. In the following four Sundays of Advent, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will take place also after the main Holy Mass at 11 a.m. This is the quiet period for our parish and there are groups of pilgrims from Italy, the United States, Germany, Austria and Korea.
