Mr. László Papp: we bank upon the families at Christmas, 2018
It is important that with the outward trappings apart we can get prepared in spirit for the holiday, for only in this manner can we internalize the spirit of Christmas – said Mr. László Papp, mayor of Debrecen, in his Advent greetings he shared with the high-ranking leaders or representatives of several denominations at the press conference of Advent in Debrecen, 2018, on November 20.
2018 is the „Year of Families” , therefore numerous programmes are there to entertain families in the bustling throngs in the main square in Debrecen. Mr. László Papp, encourages Debrecen families to attend the lighting of the Advent candles outside the Nagytemplom (Big Church) on Sunday. Debrecen is one of the capital cities of the Christian Faith where spiritual community is a binding force for all – added Mr. László Papp. Mr. Papp announced that on the occcasion of Christmas this year the city of Debrecen put support given to auistic children in the focus. A special element of this year’s Advent is that 24 quarters of the township of Debrecen make their debuts with 24 Christmas trees, by means of which each quarter can present its specialities.
