Government official inaugurates ethnic Slovene community’s Catholic parish

Miklos Soltesz, the state secretary for church and minority relations, inaugurated a renovated Roman Catholic parish of the ethnic Slovene community in the village of Apatistvanfalva, in eastern Hungary, on Wednesday.

Relations with national minorities in Hungary have long been characterised by unity and mutual assistance, Soltesz said at the inauguration.

Ethnic communities that want to survive need faith, need to nurture their mother tongue, preserve their culture, and need quality education, the state secretary said.

The government guarantees those conditions to the national minorities living in Hungary and aids them in preserving their values with all the tools at its disposal, he said.
