Archdiocese of New York Creates Opportunity to Lock and Occupy Our Lady of Vilnius Church by Summoning Pastor to A Meeting With the Cardinal
Yesterday, after Mass, Father Sawicki announced that he had been summoned to meet with the Cardinal at 9:00 AM Monday morning.
After he left, Father's volunteer secretary was greeted by the Archdiocese Commisioner of Buildings and men from the Absolute Security Company. She was given a letter informing her of their intent to change the locks on the church and the rectory. She informed them that Father lived in the Rectory, wherein they proceeded to change the locks on the church.
Four men from Absolute Security remained behind in the church hall after the locks were changed.
