BVM/Caritas is not only the #1 Pilgrimage
Going to Medjugorje,
but it is also with the Lowest Price

When you begin thinking of going to Medjugorje or going back again, you need to make a very important decision.


“Why” are you going?

“What” do you want to achieve?

“How” can you encounter Our Lady?


There is a lot to contemplate.  You should answer the following questions:

Do you want to go to Medjugorje for fun, to social party, to relax?

Many pilgrimages are just such.  After going on a profound pilgrimage with BVM/Caritas…

G.C. from Houston, Texas wrote:

“I have been on two other pilgrimages with other groups, and I thought I was at a party event.”

Do you want the lowest price?

The experience of G.C. from Texas answers the question:

“Caritas/BVM Pilgrimage is the least expensive but also a true pilgrimage. It is centered around prayer and the focus is on the messages of Medjugorje.”

BVM/Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages is the
least expensive pilgrimage going to Medjugorje…

…even though, BVM/Caritas has more days on their pilgrimages, more meals, and one of the best hotels for their pilgrims, and also our own private oasis, a sanctuary all our pilgrims love.


A Friend of Medjugorje has, for 38 years, built the infrastructure for our pilgrimages to give more and do more.


BVM/Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages offer a 10-day pilgrimage, while other pilgrimages are 8-9 days.


BVM/Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrims receive 3 meals—Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.  Other Pilgrimages offer only two meals—Breakfast and Dinner.

BVM/Caritas Medjugorje pilgrims stay in a hotel where the grounds are isolated and peaceful, yet only two blocks’ walk to St. James Church.

Our pilgrims stay in a perfect location to connect to the trails to apparition sites without getting in the city environment, offering a peaceful, prayerful walk to anywhere in the village.

S.H. from Walton Beach, Florida, said:

“I couldn’t have asked for any better pilgrimage than what I received with BVM/Caritas. It is truly a great ‘bang for your buck,’ the best money I ever spent. You cannot go wrong with them.  They live and spread the Word.”

A Friend of Medjugorje has alleviated distractions so you can be focused on your pilgrimage.

A Friend of Medjugorje has looked at details that are sources of annoyances and distractions. He wants your focus solely on your pilgrimage.  All tips, therefore, are covered by BVM/Caritas Pilgrimages, rather than placing the responsibility of paying the customary tips on individual pilgrims.

A Medjugorje pilgrim, K.C. from Falls Church, Virginia, said:


“My pilgrimage with BVM/Caritas far exceeded my expectations. You do an excellent job at a very reasonable price. Thank you for all your fine services.”

Once you arrive in Medjugorje you have access to the Fort Knox of Medjugorje.

(For the young, Fort Knox was the United States’ largest gold bullion depository.)

The Caritas Mission House, located on the grounds where you will be staying, is the gold mine where you will find the motherload of materials, all about Our Lady’s messages.  This advances your pilgrimage, expanding your cognition and your experience in Medjugorje. The Caritas Mission House has dispensed, free of charge, more materials concerning Our Lady of Medjugorje and Her messages, than all others put together. The Caritas Mission House is known as “The Message Place.”

J.B. from Anna, Ohio, states:


“My trip to Medjugorje with BVM/Caritas was the best 10 days of my life. For me, there are no other pilgrimage groups that I would select. Thank you, Caritas.”

There are many Medjugorje pilgrimage groups going to Medjugorje…

…and while all of them strive to do their best and we want the best for what they do, Our Lady has blessed BVM/Caritas Pilgrimages through a Friend of Medjugorje’s 38 years of experiencing Medjugorje up-close and personal.


A Friend of Medjugorje was a young man, 33 years old, when he first went to Medjugorje. He has outlived so many of those who were his companions in those early days, fellow seekers and believers in Our Lady’s apparitions.  The longevity of his walk with Our Lady and Medjugorje, and his intimate knowledge of the inside story, makes him a valuable witness of the events as they have unfolded over the years.  All his experience and history is a key element of BVM/Caritas Pilgrimages, adding layers of understanding and depth to the overall experience of our BVM/Caritas pilgrims.    Our pilgrims are shown the “organic” Medjugorje, and given the answer to the question of, “What was it like, to be there,” in the beginning days of the apparitions.

1992-1993 War

The Croatian War of Independence, which was declared on June 25, 1991, stopped pilgrimages to Medjugorje for the years 1992, 1993 and part of 1994. However, though pilgrimages were not brought to Medjugorje, a Friend of Medjugorje was responsible for bringing millions of dollars of medial aid to the region during the war effort, in a project called PRM.

Travel was restricted and borders closed because of coronavirus. The BVM/Caritas Pilgrimage group was the last American group in the village of Medjugorje in 2020.
