Final Gathering in Front of Our Lady of Vilnius Tomorrow, Sunday, April 26, 2015
The demolition of Our Lady of Vilnius church is in progress. We have been gathering near the steps of the church most Sundays since OLV's closure. We would like to hold a final farewell gathering next Sunday, April 26 at 1:00 p.m., to honor those who initiated and gave all they had to build Our Lady of Vilnius. You are welcome to come and join us to commemorate and remember, as well, this 100-year chapter of American-Lithuanian history, this chapter of New York City's immigrant history, Our Lady of Vilnius' service to the community, and the people whose commitment and love sustained the church's life and vibrancy.
Rita and Mindaugas
