About the Only Active Lithuanian church in the Archdiocese of New York
This is the only active Lithuanian church in the Archdiocese of New York and was founded in 1905. For many years this parish church was the center of Lithuanian life. In the late 1920’s the Lithuanian community was dispersed because of the construction of the Holland Tunnel. Our roster consists of about 300 people comprising of business, neighborhood and Lithuanian people who attend Mass at this house of worship. In addition a group of Lithuanians usually comes twice a month for Lithuanian cultural events. This group has recently become affiliated with the Lithuanian American Community whose New York chairperson is one of our parishioners.
