Ivan Dragicevic was born on May 25th, 1965 in Bijakovici, in the parish of Medjugorje. Ivan was just a 16-year-old student when the apparitions began. One year later, in July 1982, Ivan founded a prayer group, which still meets regularly to this day to pray for peace in the world and for Our Lady’s intentions. He still has daily apparitions. Our Lady entrusted nine secrets to him. Initially Ivan wanted to become a priest. Ivan is married with Laureen Murphy and he has four children, Kristina Marija, Mikaela, Daniel and Matthew. With his family, he lives in Boston in the USA and in Medjugorje, for a couple of months a year.
Ivan’s prayer mission from Our Lady is particularly to pray for young people and for priests.
“Fast strictly on Wednesdays and Fridays and pray the Rosary every day.”
