“After longing to go to Caritas of Birmingham for so many years, I was finally able to be there… What an experience!! I was in Medjugorje 20 years ago and many times in these five days I found myself transported in mind and memory to that beautiful time I had there then…”
Pilgrimage to Caritas
October 19-23, 2020
(Limited Space Available Approx. 50)
Because of coronavirus, it is impossible to pilgrimage to Medjugorje from the United States. Many people have been contacting Caritas of Birmingham in the past months to ask if they can form groups from their area for a pilgrimage to Caritas. One pilgrim recently visiting Caritas with their family in early September 2020 said:
“We wanted to go to Medjugorje this year and thought that since we couldn’t go to Medjugorje, Caritas was the next-best thing. Then we thought about it and realized that Caritas was not the next-best thing, it was the same thing.”
The above testimony are the norm for those who come to Our Lady’s sanctuary of grace at Caritas. A Friend of Medjugorje is announcing the dates for a pilgrimage to Caritas of Birmingham, Monday October 19 to Friday October 23, 2020. You will be given a pilgrimage in the same format as a BVM Caritas Medjugorje pilgrimage, the #1 pilgrimage going to Medjugorje for 34 years. Visit here to request more information, for the cost of the package, hotel, food, bus transportation, etc. (Make sure you give us your phone number when requesting information so we can contact you back.)
For the thousands who have traveled with Caritas/BVM Pilgrimages to Medjugorje, the pilgrimage to Caritas in Alabama, gives you both a spiritually and physically true Medjugorje experience. There will be a daily schedule for the Caritas Pilgrimage as in Medjugorje. Call 205-672-2000 for more information. (Make sure you give us your phone number when requesting information so we can contact you back.)
Registration is required.
As this is just a few weeks away, it is important for you to call Caritas ASAP to receive more information or to get your name on the list. More pilgrimages will be organized in future months. Remember that there is limited capacity on this pilgrimage, only about 50 spots available.

Also includes the experience of seeing inside of the Community, behind the scenes, and the reality of seeing the Corona Vision manifested, in a “place” sanctified by Our Lady’s presence.
There have been 204 apparitions of Our Lady, through Medjugorje visionary, Marija, at Caritas. 148 apparitions have been in the Bedroom of Apparitions, 1 apparition when the Infant Jesus in the arms of Our Lady appeared in the loft of the home on Christmas Day with Our Lady, 6 apparitions in the Living Room of the home of our founder and his wife, 45 apparitions have been in the Field of Apparitions, 2 apparitions have been at the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain, and 1 apparition was in the writing office of a Friend of Medjugorje in The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages. These were accompanied with many messages from Our Lady. On several occasions, Our Lady appeared two times in one day. On other occasions, She came with angels. The apparitions took place throughout the years from November 1988 to the most recent ones in October 2019.
How the Pilgrimage to Caritas of Birmingham Works:
Monday October 19: You fly into Birmingham or drive in, and check in at Caritas’ official hotel. A Caritas representative will meet you at the hotel in the evening to go over the next day’s schedule.
Tuesday October 20 – Friday October 23: A bus will pick you up at the hotel in the morning. Lunch and dinner will be catered at Caritas. The bus will bring you back to the hotel in the evening. Those who drive will leave your cars at the hotel. No cars will be allowed to drive into Caritas during the pilgrimage days. Everyone will take the bus from the hotel.
NOTE: This is an exclusive pilgrimage to Caritas of Birmingham. Visiting other sites or attractions outside of Caritas will not be allowed. If one wants to visit some other place, it can be done before or after the Caritas pilgrimage ends. Your pilgrimage is a focus on Our Lady, Her message and Her call to you. This is an experience without interruptions, so as to put yourself in the best position for Our Lady to touch you in a way that would never be available if you disrupt your pilgrimage.
