Program - Prayer program

It all started on June 24,1981, when Ivanka Ivanković, Mirjana Dragičević, Ivan Dragičević, Ivan Ivanković, Milka Pavlović and Vicka Ivanković declared with deep conviction that they had seen Our Lady with the child Jesus on the Hill of Appari­tions. The following day, June 25th, Milka Pavlović and Ivan Ivanković no longer saw Our Lady, but two other children, Marija Pavlović and Jakov Čolo, did see Her.

On the third day, June 26th, after having appeared to all the children together on the Hill of Apparitions, Our Lady again appeared to Marija Pavlović. Our Lady stood in front of a large cross, pointed to it with Her hands and repeated with great sadness:


On that spot on the Hill of Apparitions, a large wooden cross was erected.

From that day on, Our Lady continued to appear to the chil­dren every day wherever they were. Presently, Marija, Vicka and Ivan still have daily apparitions, whereas Mirjana, Ivanka and Jakov only see Her once a year.

For you, dear pilgrim, as for all of us, a meeting with the Hill of Apparitions is a meeting with Mary. That is why, from the very beginning, it is important to ask the Lord with all your heart and soul to open your spiritual sight and hearing so that you may be able to listen to what She is saying and to experience Her presence.

Begin to pray on the Hill of Apparitions, as the visionaries did. As you pray the Rosary on this hill, pause at every decade of each of the Mysteries in front of the relief that depicts a scene of the life of Jesus and Mary. To pray the Rosary means to be with Jesus and Mary. At each of the Mysteries, contemplate also on your own life.

The Rosary consists of three parts, the Joyful, the Sorrowful and the Glorious Mysteries; each of these has five mysteries. Start to pray the Rosary by making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Pray the Creed and, for the intention of the Holy Father, the Our Father and three Hail Marys (Faith, Hope and Love) and one Glory Be. Then begin with the Joyful Mysteries.


This spot is marked by a large statue of Our Lady, a replica of the white statue in front of the Church. Consecrate yourself to the Im­maculate Heart of Mary here, knowing that to consecrate your­self to Her, means to consciously accept Her as mother, to live Her messages and to surrender your entire life to Her.



As you descend the Hill of Apparitions, you will come across a large wooden cross, erected on the place where Our Lady appeared Marija Pavlović on June 26,1981. It is here that She cried and called us to peace and reconciliation.



At another place of signifi­cance where Our Lady has appeared, a blue cross was erected and this site is now called the "Blue Cross". Here Our Lady appeared to Ivan  while he was hiding from the police. Today, Our Lady still appears to Ivan here sometimes when he meets with his prayer group on Tuesdays and Fridays at this site. The cross is located at the foot of the Hill of Apparitions (have a look at the Interactive map).

Immaculate Conception, Mary, my Mother.

Live in me. Act in me. Speak in and through me.

Think your thoughts in my mind. Love, through my heart.

Give me your dispositions and feelings.

Teach, lead and guide me to Jesus.

Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior.

Possess my soul. Take over my entire personality and life.

Replace it with yourself.

Incline me to constant adoration and thanksgiving.

Pray in me and through me.

Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.
-  Pope John Paul II


I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose you this day for my Mother and Queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen.
-  St. Louis Marie de Montfort
