In 1935, the Basilian Sisters came to Hungary from Uzhorod, the Zakarpatia region of Ukraine. In a short time after their arrival, they founded a separate monastery and novitiate in Mariapocs. In 1938 novices pronounced first vows.
The various Basilian communities throughout the world draw their spiritual and moral support from the dedicated life of prayer, work and sacrifice of the Basilian Nuns living in contemplative monasteries. These monasteries were especially established for this purpose in 1951, when the Order was centralized by a Decree of the Holy See and united under a General Administration with its seat in Rome, Italy.
