Conference Speakers Include:

Father Larry Richards is a gifted and captivating speaker, preacher, retreat master, and author. He has conducted hundreds of retreats and parish missions for young and old alike. His inspirational talks, presentations, and books have changed the hearts, minds, and lives of millions of listeners and readers worldwide. Father Richards is the founder of The Reason for Our Hope Foundation and the author of Be a Man! Becoming the Man God Created You to Be. Michael O'Brien was given a written message from Vicka on his first visit to Medjugorje in 1988 that said he was to use his musical talent to bring people back to the faith--a mission that he readily accepted. Since then he has performed at more than eighty Catholic conferences and over six hundred events in major city arenas and small-town churches across North America. His Sounds of Medjugorje album has sold over half a million copies. Father Jozo Grbes joined the Franciscan order in 1986 and studied in Bosnia-Hercegovina, England, and the United States. A young man when the apparitions started thirty-two years ago, Father Grbes has studied the Medjugorje messages closely and will speak about the importance of being faithful apostles of Our Lady's urgent call to conversion and peace. Father Grbes currently serves in Chicago as pastor of St. Jerome Croatian Catholic Church. Christina Georgotas was working for a New York film company when she saw a YouTube video of an apparition to Mirjana. It touched her deeply and she got the faith back that she had lost in high school. She then quit her job and went to work putting together a documentary film on Medjugorje. The film is titled Queen of Peace and is now being shown in parishes around the country. Tim Francis was a cultural "go through the motions" Catholic in his youth. Then he read and was deeply affected by the book Reason to Believe, which tells how science and Eucharistic miracles confirm the church's belief in the Real Presence. Filled with conviction to increase devotion to the Eucharist, he founded You Shall Believe Ministries. Tim now travels around the country conducting very powerful Eucharistic retreats. Daniel Klimek described himself as a "lukewarm" Catholic until he read one of Wayne Weible's books on Medjugorje. It changed his life and he developed a passion to bring Medjugorje into his academic life. With degrees from DePaul University and Yale Divinity School, he is now studying at Catholic University of America and hopes to make the scientific studies of the Medjugorje visionaries the subject of his doctoral dissertation. He is the editor of the Medjugorje Today website. Sue Ristau credits her 2005 pilgrimage to Medjugorje and her attendance at many of the Medjugorje conferences at Notre Dame with the many blessings and miracles in her life. Her daily visits with Jesus at holy adoration have led her to write a soon-to-bepublished book, The Forgotten Way. This will be the sixth year that Sue and her husband Rob have brought a full busload of people from Green Bay, WI, to the Medjugorje conference at Notre Dame. Jana Prudka is a student and a scholar from the Czech Republic who has been working in Medjugorje over the last few years as a Russian translator. Jana has stories to tell about life-changing conversions in Medjugorje, including the conversion of a large number of abortion doctors from the Ukraine. Jana recently started a Light of Mary house in the Ukraine where young people can live as a family according to the messages of Our Lady.

Father Petar Ljubicic, OFM, is the priest who will reveal the Medjugorje secrets to the world. He has expressed interest in coming as a speaker, but he is beginning a new assignment and will not be able to give a definite answer until the end of March. We will post his response on our website, www.QueenofPeaceMinistries.com, as soon as we hear from him.

Year of Faith The apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Medjugorje have brought renewed faith to millions of people from all parts of the world. Our Lady said on April 25, 1988, "Little children, believe and pray that the Father increase your faith and then ask for whatever you need. I am with you and I am rejoicing because of your conversion and I am protecting you with my motherly mantle."

Celebration of Holy Mass outside St. James Church.

"Dear children! Also today I am with you in prayer so that God will give you an even stronger faith.... Pray, pray, pray, and only in faith and through your prayer will your soul find peace and the world will find joy to be with God. Thank you for having responded to my call".
