Fr. Jojo leads a Pilgrimage to Medjugorje

Fr. Jojo accompanied a group of pilgrims from Macau, Hong Kong and China to Medjugorje, to participate in the Medjugorje Youth Festival. The 25th International Youth Festival of Medjugorje was celebrated from 31 July - 6 August 2014. The Youth Festival was held under the theme: “Behold, your Mother”. Thousands of young people from more than 60 countries gathered in Medjugorje this year. 

534 priests were also accompanying the youth from all over the world and concelebrating the Holy Mass. The priests from all continents were available for the confessions throughout the whoe time of the Festival. 

All of these events were more beautiful and special due to the singing and orchestra of the International Choir conducted by Prof. Damir Bunoza where young people from 24 countries played and sang. The Rosary and prayers of the faithful were said in 25 languages, while the whole Festival was simultaneously translated in 17 languages and directly broadcasted by many radio stations and Internet portals.
