Priest murdered in Hungary

Catholic World News - February 14, 2014

Fides, the news agency of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, has announced that a Hungarian priest has been added to its list of Church workers slain in 2013.

Born in 1940, Father András Szarvas, who was murdered in September, was a “very much appreciated priest, especially in helping the poor and all those who turned to him,” according to Fides.

A 19-year-old man who was found hiding in a public park confessed to killing the priest in the parish basement.
