Franciscans in service in the parish of Medjugorje
The Franciscan, who is serving as a priest of the nuns, residing in Miletina, and another confessor in Medjugorje, has been confirmed with the coronavirus.
In accordance with the regulation of epidemiologists, all those who need to be isolated are instructed in isolation and will strictly adhere to it. They became ill under the supervision of medical staff. All procedures are coordinated in consultation with civilian authorities and medical personnel.
The Franciscan Province of Herzegovina, in agreement with the Apostolic Visitor, will provide pastoral care for the parish and all that is necessary to function in these conditions. Parishioners should contact the parish office by phone for all their pastoral needs.
This is credible and verified information. We all ask that they follow the instructions of the civilian authorities seriously and do not cause unnecessary panic.
We wish our friars, sisters and all the sick people healing and we recommend them, with the intercession of the Queen of Peace, in prayer.
Peace and good!
Mostar / Medjugorje, March 29, 2020
