The Catholic Caritas continues to support the Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic Caritas groups operating in Transcarpathia, Ukraine, with several truckloads of aid shipments worth millions of Hungarian forints on a weekly basis, emphasized the Hungarian Catholic Bishops’ Conference (MKPK) during its regular summer session held on June 6. In order to provide long-term assistance, an Integration Center was opened in Budapest in June last year, where housing, job seeking, administrative procedures, and enrollment of children in schools are facilitated for Carpathian and Ukrainian refugees settling in Hungary. During the past year of aid provision, the Caritas Centers of the dioceses within the nationwide network of Catholic Caritas also participated in the support of refugees.
At the session, the members of MKPK summarized the experiences of Pope Francis’ apostolic visit and listened to the report evaluating the papal visit by Michael Wallace Banach, the apostolic nuncio. The bishops gratefully acknowledged that the visit was rich in graces for the Catholic Church and the whole of Hungary. In order to ensure that the words of Pope Francis remain with us for a long time, MKPK published the Hungarian translation of the Holy Father’s speeches delivered in Hungary in printed form. The Bishops’ Conference encourages individual parishes, spiritual movements, and groups to make the thoughts expressed by the Holy Father during his visit the themes of their community events.
