WITH HEART AND SOUL FOR DEBRECEN! When preparing for Christmas, we cannot focus on formalities only – emphasized László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen. At the Advent press meeting, the city leader underlined how important it was for Debrecen to be able to celebrate together with the churches in an exemplary way. Building the community is successful not only during Advent, but the whole year round, for example at the time of the Palm Sunday procession. The unity this year has several new elements, for example the spiritual occasion when on 1 December at 5 p.m. citizens together with church leaders and believers as well as the Lautitia Children’s Choir will sing the Christmas song „Glory be to God in heaven” in the main square. László Papp said that they very much looked forward to this community singing, where the festive light show was expected to be made more memorable by the lights of the audience’s mobile phones. read more
