On Saturday, December 15, 2018, Novena to the Birth of Christ will begin in Medjugorje. Every day throughout those nine days there will be Rosary on Apparition Hill at 2 p.m. That is why on Friday, December 21, we will not pray the usual Way of the Cross on Cross Mountain, instead there will be Rosary on Apparition Hill. The evening prayer programme is according to the ordinary schedule, Rosary at 5 p.m. and Holy Mass at 6 .m., followed by the regular programme. Throughout Advent, except on Sundays, early Holy Masses are celebrated at 6 a.m. celebrated by Medjugorje Franciscans. All parishioners are invited to prepare through these events for the celebration of the birth of Christ so we would all acquire many spiritual fruits in this grace-filled time.
