At the end of the celebration, Fr. Petru thanked all the visitors for their presence and the parishioners for their help in making sure all was ready. We were asked to prepare the stage and altar. The metal scaffolding sent by Sister Jean to Campulung many years ago, formed the base for the temporary stage. We are very proud of our parish and delighted to share the experience and celebration with many from the neighbouring parishes. Afterwards we enjoyed the food prepared by the “Impreuana Restaurant” (Caritas)
While showing two past pupils, now living in Bucharest (a doctor and a teacher of English) round Casa Genoveva, who got very excited when they saw the classroom where they started their education, I met a couple from the capital singing the praises of Sisters Cyril and Margaret Murray who taught their child in Sf. Elena.
This is the first time all the Campulung community were present for the parish celebration. As we enjoyed the festivities, we are counting it as one of the advantages of the travel restrictions and the “holiday at home” recommendation.
Archbishop Robu and Bishop Paulet send their blessings, prayers and good wishes to the Sisters in Selly Park and all the Sisters in the Congregation.
