Center for Peace West Mission:
To bring people closer to Jesus by promoting the message of the Our Lady of Medjugorje.
To this end:
- We offer pilgrimages to Medjugorje, which have a life-changing spiritual impact on a pilgrim’s life.
- We offer a focus on Our Lady’s message to return to God through Prayer, Fasting, daily Bible reading, Holy Mass, and Confession.
- We distribute Our Lady’s monthly message to the world via our website, Facebook and bi-monthly newsletter.
- We offer Medjugorje presentations for any size group.
- We provide books, audiotapes and CDs, rosaries, chaplets, and other Medjugorje related items at our Beaverton Oregon gift shop.
- We sponsor an annual Peace Mass at St Cecilia Catholic Church in Beaverton Oregon, celebrating the June 25 anniversary of the first apparitions in Medjugorje.
Since its inception in 1987, the Center for Peace West has:
- We have conducted Medjugorje Pilgrimages for many years. Our experienced coordinators, Medjugorje guides and priests as spiritual directors all work toward making our pilgrimages as spiritually rewarding as possible. In March 2000, thanks to a “Guardian Angel”, we were able to have a special pilgrimage for 11 priests and one seminarian.
- We have also been very successful in providing Bosnian refugee aid, particularly during the height of the war years. This continues today.
- We have had numerous conferences and other significant gatherings featuring some of the most prominent religious and lay people connected with Medjugorje and to the Catholic faith in general. Guest speakers have included four Medjugorje priests–Frs. Jozo, Svet, Branimir, visionaries Mirjana and Ivan, Bishop Steiner, Frs. Pacwa, Kosicki, and other nationally known speakers.
We feel we must persevere because Our Lady told us in her August 25, 2000 message “I desire to thank you and to inspire you to work even more for God and His Kingdom.” We hope to continue our work to reach out to unbelievers…”those who do not know the love of God…yet” We must persevere because souls are at stake and we believe the Center has been and can continue to be effective in spreading Our Lady’s messages in bringing people closer to Jesus.
