Many could not go to Medjugorje this year. Why not come to a place that Our Lady has physically marked with Her presence, blessings, and messages?
Join us, December 8-12, 2020, here at Caritas of Birmingham for the Five Days of Prayer, for the Reconciliation of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation Back to God.
