On November 6, former bishop of the Transcarpathian Reformed Church Lajos Gulácsi died at the age of 92. Today, on November 9, the funeral is to be held.


Lajos Gulácsi was born on January 8, 1925 in Tivodorfolva village of Vynohradiv district in a family where eight children were raised. As soon as the mass deportation of representatives of the Hungarian and German nationality began after World War II, he had to move to Debrecen. His pastoral activity began in 1946. Therefore, he decided to return to serve as a priest. However, he was arrested in March 19, 1949. Until May 1956, he had been serving a sentence in Kazakhstan.


- Russians, Balts, Ukrainians, representatives of different nationalities suffered together with me for faith in God. Despite the adherence to different churches, we prayed together, celebrated religious holidays, helped each other. I always tell the young that there was no animosity between neighbors from various religious groups,” Lajos Gulácsi said.


He worked for a while as an ordinary worker at the car factory in Mukachevo. It was only in 1978 that he received permission to perform pastoral ministry. From 1982 he served as pastor of the Reformed Church in Mukachevo. From 1994 to 1998, he served as bishop of the Transcarpathian Reformed Church.


He is considered one of the founders of the Transcarpathian Hungarian Institute in Beregove. He was awarded in 2011 the Order of the "Cross of Merit" of Hungary. In 2013, he received the title of “Honorary Citizen of Mukachevo.”


The ceremony of farewell with Lajos Gulácsi was held in the city of Mukachevo in the Reformed Church. The leaders of the Hungarian minority of Mukachevo region and parishioners came to say goodbye to the confessor.

In connection with the funeral and burial, Duhnovicha street of Mukachvo is blocked from Myru street to Vozziednannya. This was reported by

      Відомо, що в РПЦ та УПЦ МП століттями практикується педофілія. І сам Агафангел далеко не ангел. А церковників покривають рекетири-бандити. Хто буде нарешті визнавати свої численні гріхи, щиросердно
