Pilgrimage of mountain climbers
On Friday and Saturday, March 16th and 17th, there will be a mountain pilgrimage on Brač, which will gather believers from our three islands – Brač, Hvar, Vis. It was held on the island of Vis last year. This year, the original plan was to be on Hvar. But due to the difficulties in the organization it was decided to be in Brač.
In organizing this year’s crossroads, our parish also plays an important role. Namely, the cross road will take place on the route from Gornji Humac, via Pražnica to Pučišća. About the details of the crossroads and the overall program of that weekend will still be the talk. Here we will briefly indicate what our parish should give its contribution.
First, it is necessary to receive part of the pilgrims from the island of Hvar and Vis on sleep (Friday night on Saturday). It is necessary to arrange a dinner for all pilgrims on Saturday after the crossroads are over.
We are confident that we will be happy to respond and give our contribution. At the moment it is very important to know how many pilgrims we can take overnight. So please all those who have the opportunity and the readiness to speak to the parish as soon as possible. We need to know how many beds or rooms we have at our disposal. By the next Sunday we need to know the number.
All those who had participated in the crossroads of the past years had the opportunity to experience the value of that event and of the devotion. Likewise, they had the opportunity to feel the care and hospitality of those who received and hosted us. This year, we had this obligation, that honor. We accept it with pride and joy. Let’s do what we can and give our contribution in organizing this year’s crossroads.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent. Check them out!
Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
