CHURCH TO BE BUILT IN ROMANIA IN MEMORY OF PAPAL VISIT

          ROME, 29 (NE) In memory of Pope John Paul II' pilgrimage to Romania and as a homage to his tireless apostolic work, a Romanian diocese has announced the decision to build a new church for the faithful.

          The new temple, to be constructed at the Greco-Catholic diocese of Oradea Mare of Romanians, will be consecrated with the name "Mary, Star of Evangelization." The church will be an important initiative for the diocese's faithful, who in spite of several years of communist persecution, lived coherently their faith in the Lord and their fidelity to Peter's Successor.

          "The Pope's church," as it is has been already named by local people, will be built 6 miles from the city of Oradea, near the border with Hungary. The temple expects to become and important place of cult for the Catholic community in the diocese.
