Medjugorje was home for all participants of the 3rd National Seminar for Leaders of Formations and those responsible in brotherhoods of the Franciscan Youth. The seminar was held from March 7-9 with the theme “The one who loves Christ is full of joy” (Pope Francis) and this seminar gathered around 110 members of the Franciscan Youth from the various parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The national assistant of the Franciscan Youth of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fr. Danijel Rajic, as well as the regional assistant of the Franciscan Youth of Herzegovina, Fr. Slaven Brekalo took part together with the representative of the national council of the Franciscan Youth of Croatia, Marta Rados. The goal of this seminar was to touch the importance of formations in brotherhoods with the special emphasis on formations during the period of sympathising the brotherhood, time when the youth gets to know it.
The seminar began with gathering of participants in the hall of the Blessed John Paul II, and then Holy Mass followed in the parish church of St. James. All participants also took part in the lectures, and during the group work they discussed current formations in the local brotherhoods, the difficulties that those responsible in the Franciscan Youth are facing as well as the problem solutions.
