Six young men took solemn vows

On September 4th in the parish of St. Jacob in Međugorje, six members of the Herzegovina Franciscan Province took solemn vows during the evening Holy Mass.

The Holy Mass was led by the Provincial of the Herzegovina Franciscan Province, OFM Miljenko Šteko, concelebrating with numerous priests.

In his homily, OFM Miljenko said that “this great day did not come overnight, but after several years of prayer and contemplation and reading of God's gifts”. “None of us knows what awaits us tomorrow there where God calls us. The spiritual vocation is not an area of knowledge, but an area of faith”, said OFM Miljenko, encouraging the six young men to understand the Gospel as St. Francis did.

After the Holy Mass, congratulations and socializing were organized.

On that day, the ones asking God and the Church that by vowing the Rule and life in the Order of Friars Minor, they could follow the teachings and footsteps of the Lord Jesus Christ, were: OFM Ivan Crnogorac (parish of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Posušje), OFM Fran Ćorić and OFM Slaven Tomić (parish of St. Anthony of Padua - Humac), OFM Ivan Slišković and OFM Marko Galić (Parish of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Široki Brijeg) and OFM Marin Mikulić (St. Peter and Paul - Kočerin).
