On Monday, December 15, 2014, Novena to the Birth of Christ will begin in Medjugorje. Every day throughout the nine days there will be Rosary on Apparition Hill at 2 p.m. That is why next Friday 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. There is the opportunity for confessions every morning at 5.30 before Holy Mass and during the evening prayer programme. All parishioners are invited to prepare through these events for the celebration of the birth of Christ.
