Dear fellow Hungarians,
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Georgene Mogyorossy. I was born in Hungary, and formerly lived in both Chicago and Cleveland where my family attended St Stephen’s King of Hungary Church and Saint Emeric Church, respectively. Both these churches were foundational in supporting the Hungarian community, including scouting, dance clubs, commemorative events, and the like.
I moved to this area about three year ago. My daughter, Sabrina Faludi introduced me to the Scouts at the time and a good friend initiated me to the activities of HAAW. I was thrilled to participate in the vibrant Hungarian programs offered here. My other daughter Sylvia Zavatchen also joined the Scouts’ programs shortly after moving here. Last year, I was asked to be the treasurer of HAAW.
As you can see, we are very much involved in the Hungarian community. That is why I was somewhat saddened to hear that there is no Hungarian Catholic mass offered here. Therefore, I explored the possibility of a Hungarian mass celebration in this area. I’m happy to inform the Hungarian society that the Archdiocese of Seattle is in the process of approving this endeavor.
I would like to ask Hungarians to show their interest by leaving comments either on our Facebook page “Seattle-i Magyar Katolikus Hírek” or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking forward meeting you all in person.
