Ordained to the priesthood on 24 March 1974, for the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno, Puljić was appointed Bishop Dubrovnik on 7 December 1989 and was ordained into that office on 14 January 1990. Bishop Puljić became the archbishop of Zadar on 15 March 2010.
In October 2010, Archbishop Puljić, following up on the wish of his predecessor, conveyed a small silver reliquary containing a portion of the relics of Saint Simeon to Archbishop Theofylactus of Jordan, representative of Theophilos III, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, for the monastery of Saint Simeon the Godbearer in Katamon, Jerusalem. It is popularly believed that the relics of Saint Simeon, one of the patron saints of Zadar, lie in the Church of Saint Simeon, in Zadar.
