Sisters of Social Service: Answering the Call to Our Name
Eastern European SSS Continue to Serve at the Ukrainian Borders

With assistance from Sister Magdolna Kővári
General Moderator

March 24, 2022 - Our three Eastern European Districts have joined efforts coordinated by the national leadership conferences of men and women religious in different ways; the district moderators serve in different roles in the Leadership Conferences – Sr. Emma Németh is president of the LCWR(Leadership Conference of Women Religious) in Hungary, Sr. Ildikó Homa, the secretary of the LCWR in Romania, and Sr. Renata Jamborova, the Vice President of the joint leadership conference of men and women religious in Slovakia, and as such they are instrumental of the coordination work. Most of our Sisters are using their free time or taking time off from their regular ministries to volunteer at the borders, at railway stations and refugee centers, offering help and support that is most needed, including packing and organizing goods, services and other life-giving staples, as well as offering a willing ear, personal counselling and guidance. A few Sisters have their full-time ministry related to some organization that is involved directly in relief services, like Sr. Rita Víg from Hungary, whose consistent daily ministry is with Catholic Charities.
