Romania: Support for 50 for seminarians in Oradea

The Greek-Catholic diocese of Oradea continues to rejoice at the high number of new priestly vocations. One of the most important factors contributing to this is the intensive family apostolate of the diocese. For it is evident that families who play an active part in Church life and who truly live their faith will provide the most fertile soil for future priestly and religious vocations.

We are helping the seminary once again for the formation of its 54 candidates.

In 2017 the seminary in Oradea celebrated its 225th anniversary. In the 20th century, however, this long history was brutally interrupted by the communist persecution of the Church, and it was not until after the political changes that it was once again possible for young men to enter the seminary. The new beginning was far from easy – above all from an economic point of view. ACN has been helping the reconstituted seminary in Oradea since 1993. And it still urgently needs our help today, for the diocese is very poor.

Father Anton Cioba, the rector of the seminary, has written to us. „Without help from abroad, we could not fulfil our mission“, he says. „We continue to depend on your support and we thank you with all our hearts for the help you have already given us in the past. In doing so you are helping us to experience the universality of the Catholic Church. May God bless you and all our kind benefactors.“

We are helping the seminary once again for the formation of its 54 candidates. A total of 32,400 Euros.
