The Demolition of St. George's Church in Shenandoah, PA

Today I received e-mail from a fellow Our Lady of Vilnius parishioner regarding the case of St. George's Church in Shenandoah, PA. St. George's is the oldest Lithuanian church in the United States. My fellow parishioner said:

" A page and a half in Lithuanian Newspaper Draugas (Chicago) details the impending shameful destruction of St. George's church in Shenandoah PA Church. It is the oldest Lithuanian Church and parish in the USA. The diocese of Allentown employed virtually identical formula that was used to liquidate OLV. "

News of the demolition is also available via a piece on the WNEP website, Historic Church Demolition Begins".

Keep abreast of this story on the website of those trying to save this historic church
