Branch church in Surmanci, one of the hamlets of Medjugorje parish, situated in the valley of river Neretva, was blessed on the feast of Divine Mercy, April 7, 2002 and it was consecrated to Merciful Jesus. When faithful from the area as well as pilgrims arriving to Medjugorje, found out about this little church in that village, they started to come there for Holy Masses.
They come individually, but also in groups, all to pray before the icon of Merciful Jesus. Parishioners and pilgrims prepared for this feast with novena and Fr. Dragan Ruzic was the main celebrant of the solemn Holy Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday.
