To all Catholics and Germans From Karaganda

An Alle Katholiken und Deutsche aus Karaganda

"To all Catholics and Germans From Karaganda." Volk auf dem Weg, December 1993.

Translation from German to English by Ingeborg Wallner Smith, Western Springs, Illinois


The community St. Josef in Karaganda, founded by Germans, plans to build a parish center and a church tower. The community cannot finance this construction with its owns means. So I ask all former members of the community and all who wish to help us, for their contributions. Payments are requested to the Account of Priest Johannes Börsch, Kto.-Nr.: 119 160 23 at the Pax-Bank eG Köln (BLZ 370 601 93) Keyword “Karaganda”.

God bless you!

Johannes Teir, Parish Priest

Our appreciation is extended to Ingeborg Smith for translation of this article.
