After we prayed the Litany of Loreto and sang "Marija, Marija" this past Sunday, we folded, labeled, stamped, sealed and mailed 549 letters to parishioners, people who contributed to the church and those who signed the paper petition back in August. We worked hastily and happily in each other's company on the steps of the church. If you get one of these letters, it may contain some genuine urban grit from Broome Street and the Holland Tunnel.
Because legal action is under way, an emergency legal defense fund has been created to help cover the costs of our battle. Efforts already in progress are expected to cost at least $20,000. Please read the letter of appeal in English HERE, or in Lithuanian HERE, and consider making a tax-deductible donation.We would be grateful for whatever help you can give us, especially your prayers.
