On Saturday, May 4th, after the Holy Mass, a millennium photograph was taken in the sign of the cross of St. Damian, a recognizable logo of this meeting. Then representatives of the local fraternities presented a gift that they brought to the parish of Vitez.

After that, a lecture was given by OFM Stipe Kljajić, and then Msgr. Marko Semren, Auxiliary Bishop of Banja Luka, had a lecture on the topic Christ lives according to the Apostolic Exhortation Christus vivit.

On Sunday, May 5th, after the prayer, the present were given the opportunity to listen to the testimonies of the former Frama members who are now making their lives either in the monastery or in their married life, living still those values that St. Francis lived by, reports web-portal bosnasrebrena.ba
