General Announcements 

Medjugorje chaplain to speak in Indianapolis, Bedford on March 7, 8

Dominican Father Leon Pereira, the chaplain for English-speaking pilgrims in Medjugorje since September 2015, will speak on “5 Stones of Medjugorje: 5 Messages of Our Lady” from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at two parishes: St. John the Evangelist Parish, 126 W. Georgia St., in Indianapolis, on March 7, and at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, 1723 I St., in Bedford, on March 8.

Father Leon will share stories of his experiences in Medjugorje, a small town in the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina (also known as Bosnia-Herzegovina) in east-central Europe. Many believe that apparitions of the Blessed Mother have been occurring there since 1981.

While the Church has not declared the apparitions to be of supernatural origin, a Vatican commission voted in 2017 in favor of recognizing the first seven apparitions. That same year, Pope Francis appointed a papal envoy to Medjugorje; in December 2017 the envoy declared that parishes and diocese were permitted to lead official pilgrimages to the site.

For more information about the event at St. John the Evangelist Parish, call 317-635-2021. For more information on the event at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, call 812-275-6539.
