Parish house renovated with government support inaugurated in Cluj Napoca

A parish house that belongs to the Reformed Church in Cluj Napoca (Kolozsvar), Romania, was inaugurated on Sunday, after undergoing a renovation supported by the Hungarian government.

Arpad Janos Potapi, the state secretary for policy affecting Hungarians beyond the borders, acknowledged the work of historical Hungarian churches in preserving Hungarian identity and faith. He also paid tribute to the role of Cluj Napoca in Hungarian history and its contribution to the Hungarian nation.

Bela Kato, a bishop for the Reformed Diocese of Transylvania, said the renovation was undertaken not just to preserve a landmark building, but to serve the local youth as “leaven for the future”.

The inauguration coincided with the start of the 14th Kolozsvar Hungarian Days.
