SOCIAL - PASTORAL CENTER „OUR LADY ” TURȚ

in partenership with Vicentian Conference of Turț

FAITH, LOVE, HOPE

”love for widows and orphans, prisoners, and the sick and needy of every kind, is as essential to [the Church] as the ministry of the sacraments and preaching of the Gospel. The Church cannot neglect the service of charity any more than she can neglect the Sacraments and the Word”. — Pope Benedict VXI, Deus Caritas Est (2005), paragraph 22
As catholic christians we believe that every human being is created in the image and likeness of God and therefore has inherent worth and value. We are convinced that in loving the poor ones, we love Jesus Christ himself, who identified with the poor, regardless of nation or creed.

SOCIAL CENTER EXTERIOR

We would like to bring to your attention a project which we are developing in our parish: a day center for poor children, a house where hungry children will be served lunch and dinner everyday after school. We intend to help the poor children from around the town of Turț, including the Roma population.

There will be help to complete and further their academic studies as well as spiritual education. The center will benefit from the help of volunteers from around the world: students from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, America, Germany, Italy, England and volunteers from other countries.

Our twinned SVP ST.BIRINUS Conference

OUR TWINNED SVP ST.BIRINUS CONFERENCE
SOCIAL CENTER EXTERIOR

Our twinned SVP St Birinus Conference in Dorchester on Thames, England, UK  In keeping with Blessed  Frédéric Ozanam’s vision of creating a network of  charity around the world The SVP offers a twinning program connecting Conferences around the world.

Twinning cuts through language and cultural barriers and connects us in one Catholic and universal spirit of charity. The International Twinning program is committed to sharing financial resources, creating cross-cultural friendships, and exchanging prayers. 

Vincentians do the work of serving the poor in their communities. The primary role of the Vincentian is to provide loving and compassionate support to those in need. 

The Oxfordshire SVP members under coordination of our friends Mr. Philip and his fiancé Adriana launched an emergency appeal to raise funds for our Social Center. Due to their financial support we were able finally to acquire a new pellet boiler for our project. We are very thankful to their support. 

We keep them and all their conference members in our prayers every day during celebration of Divine Liturgy. 

May God Bless the members of Vincentian family and all those who support our social –charitable activities.

Wim and Marga

Wim and Marga, from Luxembourg, friends and collaborators of our association, initially helped in Gambia, but finishing their charitable mission in this part of the world, they turned their eyes to Europe. They have become very close to us and to what we are trying to do in our community. The Vincentian association which develops social activities together with Greek Catholic Parish of Turt, opened a charity shop, which was supplied by this family, which sent objects, clothes, shoes, collected from the donations made by the generous people in the area where they live. For many years they helped us financially and/or with donations of material goods for our charity store or for the Social Center, which is currently under construction. Their objective was to help us finish the construction as soon as possible. This project, which represents a social-charitable center, will be a welcoming place for vulnerable children who need help with their homework and spiritual and psycho-educational support. This family also helped us with monetary donations, participating in what are called – flewmarkt (fairs). We thank them for their collaboration and hope that in the future we will witness the long-awaited inauguration of the social – center.

The satisfaction comes from the gratitude, and today we can gladly announce that the Happy Glass Company, from Baia Mare, sponsered and install the children house shower glasses. May God bless their love proof for others!

We especially want to say thank you to all the people that made it happen. The December 2020 fund raising was a succes. We now have 22 new beds, fully equipped. People got really envolved and we could see faith proof by doing something for the ones in need. May God bless them all with all His holly gifts!
