The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vrhbosna

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vrhbosna is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Roman Catholic Church in eastern Bosnia. Its episcopal see is the city of Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was elevated to an archdiocese on July 5, 1881. The Diocese of Vrhbosna is much older and was formed in the 11th century. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Skopje is a suffragan of the Archdiocese.

Vrhbosna's cathedral is the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Sarajevo. Cardinal Vinko Puljić currently serves as the archbishop of the archdiocese. Pero Sudar serves as the auxiliary bishop.

Vinko Puljić has had many serious issues to deal with since becoming archbishop in 1990. First, he had to deal with the Bosnian War which resulted in the Siege of Sarajevo on the archdiocese's home. In the war's aftermath, repairs had to be completed to many damaged churches and chapels. However, the biggest struggle has been the exodus of Croatian Catholics from the region during the war. The Catholic population in the diocese is less than half of what it was before the conflict. Although it has slightly rebounded, it has been an uphill struggle for the church.
