ASIA/UZBEKISTAN – The Apostolic Administrator: “Priests and missionaries are always needed”

Asia / Uzbekistan-Diocese Manager: “Priests and missionaries are always needed”

Tashkent (Agenzia Fides)-“The reduction in the effects of the coronavirus in Uzbekistan has led to a resurgence of the international community, which has been declining in the last two years. This also affects us. In Tashkent, Every Sunday, English, Russian, Korean. At one point, you can count on the support of priests from abroad. For example, recently, a French priest from the Apostle St. John’s Institute has given us. They will reach out, while every three months, two priests from South Korea who will stay for about 10 days will be added to ensure the correct idyllic journey of the Korean-speaking community. Father. Uzbekistan parish administrator Jerzy Maculewicz, OFM Conv. Is idyllic even in a creative way by a small local church to support local believers and give them access to all the secrets. Talk about how you are trying to get the job done. According to Franciscan, the spiritual accompaniment of the Korean community represents a challenge for Uzbek monks. Sunday, April 3, this We baptized six children between the ages of 10 and 12 in the community. Unfortunately, no one knows Korean and only some speak English or Russian. Anyone can receive the sacred confession in these languages, or they do it by limiting themselves to highly restricted dialogues We sin in Korean and some A list of penalties can be guaranteed to confess, and during the period when the two monks arrive from South Korea, these loyal people can rely on a more detailed spiritual guide. It’s easy. That’s a good idea, but it seems to work at this point. ” The growth and change of Uzbekistan’s loyal community leads to an increasing need for priests. In this regard, Father. Maculewicz states: Like Bukhara, there are Franciscan priests and religious brothers. Urgench has only one Diosesan priest. Samarkand has two priests from the Institute of Incarnate Wards, while Tashkent has three, one of whom is very old. And because of illness, I can only celebrate.
Perhaps he will return to Poland for immediate treatment and then back here. ” Franciscan explains that the lack of priests and religions represents a brake on the development of new communities. The new parish is at a standstill as we seek help in the first place. I invited a congregation of nuns to establish a presence in Urgench, where there is only one priest. Last year, I was visited by the President of the Franciscans with my father from a rural region in Poland. Together, we are trying to involve other Asian Franciscans in our mission, and we will probably start working with Indonesia. ”But the positive news is the profession of the Uzbek people. Coming from the front line: “We have two boys in the second year of the seminary, a boy doing a seminary preparation year in Krakow, Indonesia, in Kazakhstan. This makes us happy and we It’s news that gives hope to the future of our mission, “he concludes. (LF-PA) (Agenzia Fides, 5/4/2022)
