Government contributes to church renovation in Transylvania

Five historic churches in the Alba Iulia (Gyulafehervar) region, in central Romania, refurbished with financing from the Hungarian government, were inaugurated on Sunday.

The Roman Catholic churches of Dumitreni (Szentdemeter), Beu (Szekelybo), Sancraiu de Mures (Marosszentkiraly), Racu (Csikrakos), and Sacaramb (Nagyag) were inaugurated in a mass attended by representatives of the Hungarian construction ministry and the Teleki Laszlo Foundation, the manager of the reconstruction projects.

State Secretary Rego Lanszki said in his address at the ceremony that “the house and the homeland must be built on a rock . building a nation requires the safe foundations of a community, that is why the Hungarian government provides assistance to the renewal of historic monuments in the Carpathian Basin”.

Lanszki said the Hungarian parliament could adopt a new historic monuments act, under which a comprehensive register of Hungarian-related historic monuments in the Carpathian Basin would be set up.
