Postcard from Medjugorje 2016


As Kairos Community Trust’s 25th anniversary coincided with the Year of Mercy in the Catholic Church, the sponsor of our Medjugorje trips generously offered to fund a reunion visit to the shrine for anyone from Kairos who had been there over the past seven years. Thirty-seven people took up the offer and spent a week (15-22 October) in this beautiful Bosnian village surrounded by mountains, a few miles inland from the Adriatic Sea.

Millions have visited the shrine over the past 35 years since six local children first had visions of the Virgin Mary. There is little doubt that we visitors from Kairos Community Trust have benefitted and grown spiritually from our experience – often a very personal one. What a pleasure to be away with such wonderful people. – Mossie Lyons
