After the end of the war between the Holy League and the Ottoman Empire (1683-1699) and the conclusion of the Treaty of Carlowitz (1699), Slavonia, devastated by the war, was ready to be repopulated. Many returned to their abandoned villages, and refugees from south of the Sava were looking for their place in the desolated areas of Slavonia. The Franciscans of the Province of Bosna Srebrena, as well as the central government in Vienna, played a role in these migration movements. The Franciscans tried to save their parishioners from regions still under the Ottoman rule by settling them in their desolated parishes in safer areas of Slavonia. The authorities, on the other hand, tried to populate the deserted villages in order to make Slavonia economically and militarily useful again. Thus, at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries, Županja shared the fate of many Slavonian villages. Ten years after the conclusion of the Treaty of Carlowitz, the desolate village of Županja was repopulated and incorporated into the Bošnjaci parish, under the pastoral care of the Franciscans. In the middle of the 18th century, due to changes in the Church government, and through the mediation of the secular government, Županja becomes the center of the parish, which remained unchanged until the end of the century.
