Each evening you and thousands of other pilgrims will pray the rosary all three Mysteries during the evening program. You are right in the heart of the place where Our Lady shared her intention to stay with "her children" on the path of Prayer, Reconciliation, Holy Mass, Fasting and Bible reading - five cornerstones of message Queen of Peace left for us here! Our Lady's call for Prayer of the Rosary, Holy Mass, and Confession are the center of the evening program in St. James Church. According to the words of three visionaries apparition takes place every day, three of them see Her daily, Vicka, Ivan and Marija. Mirjana, Jakov Medjugorje - daily Holy Mass at St. James church and Ivanka are the three visionaries who don’t have daily apparitions but once a year.
