MEGHAN'S STORY

In October of 2018, Meghan, her mother Angie Schexnayder, and Father Anthony Odiong of St. Anthony of Padua church, along with friends and other parishioners, made the pilgrimage to Medjugorje in Bosnia and Herzegovina .  Meghan, at the time, was quite ill and diagnosed in her seventh year of bone/lung cancer. During this trip, booked through the Croatian Mir Center,  Meghan stayed as part of a group of 50 or so people with the visionary Mirjana Soldo. During her stay, Mirjana and Meghan bonded. Meghan and Father Anthony were invited to kneel  next to Mirjana for the October 2, 2018 Apparition. In addition Father Anthony was asked to lead the English version of the Rosary before the Apparition started. 
 

Immediately after the Apparition, Meghan  was approached by Stella Mar film Crew, who asked if they could document her story, and Father Anthony was invited to be The Main Celebrant for nearly 30,000 pilgrims at St. James Chapel.
 

Which leads to the mission that we’re on now.  Meghan was asked to return to help to lead Youth Fest. Every year an estimated 50,000 to 80,000 youth attend this festival. In addition, Meghan was asked to return as a guest to share her Story of Conversion, as well as bring Youth from Our Parish and to share her experience of the October Apparition .
 

Unfortunately, Meghan passed away from her Cancer on January 15th, 2019. 
 

A small group of family and friends, including Father Anthony, Meghan's parents, friends, and fellow parishioners, have taken up Meghan's torch and will continue to lead groups of youths to Medjugorje. 

 

We invite everyone to view Meghan’s faithful journey through her own words. Meghan’s faith and inner strength are documented as only she could present it. They were recorded in prosperity by the Catholic Church to be made available for those needing to find and/or deepen their faith.

Throughout this website you will find quotes of some of Meghan's favorite bible versus, quotes from Meghan herself and videos of her story and the story of the youth that Megan's Mission has taken to Medjugorje.

Our Lady's Message to Mirjana Soldo

"I am calling you to be courageous and to not grow weary, because even the smallest good - the smallest sign of love - conquers evil which is all the more visible."

"It’s beautiful and you can just tell that Gods hands are here"
