The coordinator of the seminar is Fr. Miljenko Šteko.

The lecturer at the seminar is Fr. Ivan Dugandžić – Franciscan priest, member of the Franciscan Province of Herzegovina. He was born in 1943 in Krehin Gradac, municipality of Čitluk, Herzegovina. After his graduation from secondary school in Dubrovnik, in 1962, he entered the Franciscan order. He completed his theological studies in Sarajevo and Königstein (Germany) and was ordained a priest in 1969. He continued post-graduate studies and obtained his doctoral degree in Biblical Theology in Würzburg (Germany). From 1990 to 2010, he lived and worked in Zagreb. He conducted courses teaching exegesis of the New Testament and Biblical Theology at the Catholic Theological Faculty and its Institutes. He publishes his works in professional theology journals. In various publications of religious press he elaborates on Biblical themes as seen in contemporary times. He is the author of several books. He lived and worked in Međugorje during two time periods: from 1970 to 1972 and from 1985 to 1988. Now he is staying and is active in Čitluk.

You may make reservations by e-mail: seminar.marija@medjugorje.hr
, or by fax: +387-36-651-999 (for Marija Dugandzic).
The parishioners of the Međugorje parish will provide free accommodation to all priests during the seminar as they have done in all the years to date. We kindly ask all priests who are organising their own accommodation with friends in Međugorje to list the name, surname and telephone number of the family with whom they have organised accommodation in their registration form. Priests who do not themselves have acquaintances and the possibility of directly organising accommodation with families should make a note of this in their registration form and we will organise it for them.
Instead of a monetary payment, we ask you to kindly celebrate five Mass intentions.
It is necessary to bring with you: your celebret given by your superior, an alb and stole, a Bible.
Many priests who do not have access to Internet may not have been informed about the existence of this international meeting in Medjugorje. Therefore, we kindly ask all Organizers of pilgrimages, Prayer Groups and Centres for Peace to publish this information as widely as possible by all means at their disposal, so that as many priests as possible may participate. In as much as it is possible, we also kindly ask you to financially assist the priests who would like to come but do not have the necessary funds for such a journey. We thank you in advance and pray for God’s blessing and the blessing of the Queen of Peace upon you and your work.

For the purpose of the seminar organization and your safety, please consider yourself as registered for seminar only when you receive our written confirmation. If you did not receive our reply, it means that we have not received your application and that you are not registered, because you forwarded your e-mail to a wrong address or you have got a virus which blocks your e-mails automatically. Consequently, you may consider yourself as registered for the seminar only if you received a positive response.
