A Catholic kindergarten extended with a grant of 32 million forints from the Hungarian state was inaugurated in Gyergyószentmiklós (Gheorgheni), Romania, on Saturday.
The kindergarten, which provides daycare and meals for twenty children, was consecrated by Gergely Kovács, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Gyulafehérvár (Alba Iulia).
Speaking at the ceremony, Secretary of State in the Prime Minister’s Office for Churches, Minorities and Civil Affairs Miklós Soltész said that even a small kindergarten group has an important role to play in ensuring that young families stay in the neighborhood, decide to have children and bring up to keep and pass on their Hungarian identity and their Catholic faith.
After ten years of the government’s introduction of national policies, Soltész said, Hungary now has much better relations with its neighbors, and this is also because the funding provided not only enriches the ethnic Hungarians who live there, but also neighboring states.
