A prayer unheard – the Catholic Church’s role in causing the Moldavian Csángó Hungarians to loose their mother tongue. This examines the history of the Roman Catholic Church’s presence in the Csángó communities in Moldavia from the 16th century to the present. Religion is and has always been very important in the life of the Csángó people. A main issue is whether or not (mostly not) this ethnic group has been able to hear mass in their mother tongue. By Sándor Klára.
