Help Train Seminarians in Bosnia and Herzegovina

During the recent Balkan wars, Sarajevo was under siege by the Serbs from April 5, 1992, to February 29, 1996. During this time the Catholic population suffered greatly, and since the end of the war there has only been a very tentative reconciliation between the various parties. Despite this the Catholic Church has seen a flourishing of vocations, with no fewer than 47 candidates for the priesthood this year in the Sarajevo seminary.
