Information about the mission:


The Reformed Church started Home Mission work among the Hungarians in 1890. There are at present sixteen Hungarian Missions on the Roll, with a membership of 2,400, besides twice as many adherents. The Board of Home Missions recently organized a Mission at Northampton, Penna. Daily Vacation Bible Schools are conducted during the Summer months in most of these Hungarian churches. They are largely attended by Hungarian children who are being instructed in the fundamental truths of our religion.

Through the cooperation of the Woman's Missionary Society, the Board is supporting four Deaconesses among the Hungarians. These women care for the children of Hungarian families, assist in conducting Vacation Bible Schools, and minister to their countrymen in religious as well as temporal affairs.

The "Reformatusok Lapja" is the name of the weekly publication, edited by Rev. Alexander Harsanyi, Ph.D., of Homestead, Penna., which circulates among Hungarians in both the Presbyterian and Reformed Churches. The "Bibliai Tanito" is a monthly publication intended for religious instruction.

There are many opportunities for enlarging the work among the Hungarians at the present time. Many of them have within the last few years taken out naturalization papers and are determined to remain in America. In many instances our English and German Churches can interest themselves in behalf of these people and afford them religious privileges in our established places of worship. The children of these Hungarians will become thoroughly Americanized within a generation and they will in due time attend our Sunday Schools and Catechetical Classes and take their place among our church workers.
