130th anniversary of the arrival of the CJ sisters in Presov-East Slovakia

On the 1st of September 2012, Bishop em. Alojz Tkáč  celebrated a Solemn Mass to commemorate the arrival of 4 sisters from St. Pölten in Presov in 1882. Bishop Dr. Constantin Schuster from Košice had invited them to come and found a school in the city. Through the education of girls he wanted to strengthen the faith in his diocese. The sisters got on very well until 1950 when the Communists forced them to leave Presov.  The school still exists as a state school.
After the revolution the sisters began once again to teach in different diocesan and state schools. They are also engaged in pastoral and social work.
