How to Make an Appeal I: Write!

This content is adapted from St. Mary's Church in Newburgh, NY, a church on the Archdiocesan realignment list which has mounted an exemplary appeal.

Please immediately write to any of all of the representatives of the Catholic Church listed below.

Letters should discuss the personal reasons why you attend Mass and other functions at Our Lady of Vilnius, the positive influence of Our Lady of Vilnius in the community, and why our parish should remain open.

Each letter sent is an indication of support for Our Lady of Vilnius.

Father Eugene asks that anyone who sends a letter to the Cardinal regarding the church closing please be sure to send a copy to the church office. It is very important thall all efforts to "save the church" be coordinated through the parish. Our efforts must be consolidated, that is, be a parish effort, to be effective.
