Hello to all Friends of Saint Peter Lithuanian Parish;
This is written to provide the latest information about our efforts to keep St. Peter Lithuanian Parish open.
A Central Steering Committee has been formed to act as a clearing house and sounding board for all actions being undertaken in our campaign to nullify the intent of the archdiocese to close the Parish. Committee members are: Gloria Adomkaitis, Gintaras Cepas, Rima Knasas, William Olevitz and Anthony Shalna.
A Finance Committee, comprised of Algis Adomkaitis, Vytautas Dilba and Wanda Griganavicius Kiely, is busy receiving, recording and processing donations that are coming in daily. It is important that we reach our intended goal of $100,000+ if we plan to challenge the archdiocese in a meaningful way. So, please, if you have not yet donated to the cause, please take time to write and send your check today. A $500. donation per family is suggested but any donation, larger or smaller, is welcomed and needed. Acknowledgements, of donations received, will be sent out in the next few days.
If you know of families or individuals who may have left the area, but still feel an emotional attachment to the Parish, please contact them and ask for their support. If you have additional names, addresses, phone numbers or email addresses of individuals who may wish to support our cause, please send them to our email address
