A life lived with dignity
An extraordinary event took place on Tuesday, the 30th of August 2022, at St. Elizabeth's Elderly Home in Oradea, administered by Caritas Catolica, where Mrs. Dani Elena (Mrs. Ica) was greeted with the occasion of her 100th birthday. The extraordinary ceremony was attended by illustrious guests such as his excellence, Mr. László Böcskei, the Roman Catholic diocesan bishop, the representative of the Prefect's Chancellery, Mr. Cristian Stef, the Reformed pastor Melinda Nacsádiné Csuka, the director of Caritas pastor József Rajna, as well as artists, musicians and guests from abroad.
Commemoration of pastor Döme
Today, several of the Caritas employees, believers and beneficiaries even from Sălacea and Salonta came to the small chapel of the St. Joseph Center to pay homage to the memory of pastor Demeter Curaliuc, who was accompanied yesterday in his last trip to the cemetery Rulikowski from Oradea.
We have a common language: love
The team of Caritas Catolica Oradea has received an unexpected reinforcement for the summer period in the person of Mr. Rainer Pag, a guest volunteer from Germany, who has dedicated his hard-earned days off to volunteer for several months in Oradea, helping both local communities and Ukrainian refugees. He has been involved not only in charity actions, but also in the background work invisible to the public, from unloading goods and sorting donations, to delivering hot meals and supplying charity shops with merchandise. As he emphasized, whichever department of Caritas he was in, he had no problem making himself understood by the staff and the beneficiaries, because even though they did not speak each other's native language, they still had a common language: love, which made all work easier. We talked to the German guest volunteer about his motivation, experiences and plans.
