In a recent video, a Hungarian Catholic community in Melbourne, Australia made an open call for a new priest. The departure of Father Misi Laczkó motivated the Hungarian families of the community to create an open invitation for an enthusiastic and devoted Catholic priest and posted the video online.
Regnum Marianum is a global Hungarian Roman Catholic religious community with a sizable diaspora in Australia. For the last five years, the spiritual life of the Melbourne community was guided by Father Misi, who recently decided to step down from his position and return to Hungary. This prompted the community to create a video invitation which features local families calling for a new priest for the local Hungarians.
Regnum Marianum operates a Catholic church and a Sunday school where children are taught by Hungarian teachers about the teachings of Catholicism and about Hungarian history and culture. The community also organizes frequent folklore events to help preserve Hungarian traditions.
The community has been providing religious guidance for Hungarians living in Melbourne for 60 years, and the success of the video campaign would ensure the continuation of this tradition.
