Ben from London

We found Ben after he had some holy objects blessed by Fr. Leon outside St. James Church. He told us about his parish group from London.

This is my first time here in Medjugorje. We’re a parish from East London and there are ten of us here. We all just decided as a group to come out — we had our calling.

It’s been great to hear stories about the apparitions. Climbing up Apparition Hill yesterday was difficult. I had the rosary in hand because getting to the first mystery I was like, ‘we’re not going to be able to do this, it’s too slippery.’ But it was fantastic, we got up and down safely. A member of the group who wasn’t able to get up when he came before followed us. Even though he walks with a stick, he was able to make it.

It’s a special place and I’m looking forward to the rest of our time here
