Caritas of Birmingham

Sign-up for the FREE Medjugorje Newsletter


Caritas of Birmingham is the largest Medjugorje center in the world promoting the events of the Medjugorje phenomenon. Located 20 miles southeast of Birmingham, Alabama, Caritas of Birmingham’s mission is to teach and help support what a Friend of Medjugorje calls the “inculturalization” of Mary’s messages into everyday life. 

“All people, of all cultures, no matter their beliefs or nonbeliefs, are to have threaded into their way of life the messages of Our Lady.  This is not a hope to achieve, it is a mandate from Heaven that will happen.”  

Friend of Medjugorje is one of the many arms of the mission of Caritas of Birmingham, which was founded by a Friend of Medjugorje in 1986, and is operated by the Community of Caritas, which Our Lady Herself requested to be formed in 1988, in the home of a Friend of Medjugorje and his wife. The Community of Caritas’ mission is to live the messages of Medjugorje first and then spread the messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje to the world.

Thanks to a Friend of Medjugorje !!! I just came back from Medjugorje and It was full of deep deep converting experiences for me.When I decided to go,I had hundreds of "reasons" which made this travel impossible but I put my "reasons" in front of Our Lady and they vanished like the smoke of a little candle when blown out...It happened precisely when you released that podcast with a friend of Medjugorje contemplating La Pieta in San Pietro...His invitation touched me in such a way that I was there in less than a week... what a miracle of our Lady !!! I had not money at the moment just to name the first "reason" that came to my mind but there were others obstacles that suddenly become nothing...I stayed for 10 days and every day was extraordinary and full of spiritual learning into what I call now "Our Lady personal guidance". One day I fell asleep at 2 pm in my hotel and woke up at midnight scared or missing too many things !!! but it was 25th and St James was open all night !
