The Anniversary of the solemn blessing of Medjugorje parish church

The Anniversary of the solemn blessing of Medjugorje parish church

date: 14.01.2016.

This year we are remembering 47 years since the church of St. James was built and solemnly blessed. After the parish was founded in 1892, the first parish church, very spacious and beautiful for the circumstances back then, was soon completed in 1897. Due to the unstable ground on which it was built, the walls began to crack and the building began to sink, so immediately after the World War I, parishioners began to think about the construction of the new church. The works initiated in 1934, and were completed on January 19, 1969, when this church was blessed. The church of St. James today is the centre of sacramental and prayer life not just of the parishioners, but of pilgrims from all over the world.
