State secretary highlights importance of cooperation at Gabcikovo church inauguration

Miklos Soltesz, the state secretary for church and minority relations, spoke at the inauguration of a Reformed church built with the support of the Hungarian government in Gabcikovo (Bos), Slovakia, on Sunday.

Soltesz called the construction of the church an “example of the power of cooperation”.

Robert Geresi, a bishop of the Slovakian Reformed Christian Church, said the inauguration was a day of joy for the whole church, noting that members of the local congregation had worshipped in a home until now.

Krisztian Forro, the leader of the Hungarian Alliance (Szovetseg) party, said the church would serve as “a new bastion” of the Hungarian community in Slovakia.

The Hungarian government supported the construction of the church with 90 million forints (EUR 244,000).
