About 150th Ann of the Franciscan monastery reconstruction on Humac

On April 4th 1867 the bishop father Anđeo Kraljević blessed the foundation stone of the reconstructed Franciscan monastery on Humac. The monastery is not only the heir to the medieval monastery St. Katherine
in Ljubuški but also an oasis of religious, educational, cultural, social and historical remembrance. Historical documents testify that Franciscans in today’s Herze
- govina are present almost eight centuries. The famous archeologist, explorer and historian father Petar Bakula writes: Herzegovinian mission (Franciscan province), takes the place amongst the first missions in the Fran- ciscan order. It came into existence in the first 20 years after the foundation of the well-known „Order by mis- sionary ventures“. According to this, Franciscans had arrived to this area in 1231. During centuries the num- ber of Franciscans has been increasing and monaster- ies, churches and other sacral objects were being built.
