of Saint Peter Lithuanian Parish – Update # 15
January 6, 2005
Happy New Year to all Friends of St. Peter Lithuanian Parish!
It is a happy new year so far considering that we are still
open and functioning as a Parish. We have no further information
to report about our status. We continue to operate and continue
to try to communicate with the archdiocese and the committee
that Archbishop O’Malley created in an attempt to present
our case for keeping the Parish open.
The Friends of St. Peter Lithuanian Parish have been incorporated
and as such, the organization is exempt from federal income
tax. Letters will be sent to each donor who contributed to
the Friends acknowledging the donation so that as each of
us files our tax returns, we shall have verification of the
donation. All letters should be mailed on or before January
Since the Friends are now incorporated, we are required to
conduct an annual meeting at which time we shall review and
vote to adopt the organization’s by-laws. The by-laws
will be posted on the Friends of St. Peter Lithuanian Parish
website under the Organization link. Please take a moment
to look at them. Copies will also be available at the meeting.
A Board of Directors will also be elected to continue and
oversee the business of the Friends. The meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday, January 25, 2005 at 7:30 p.m. at the Church Hall.
I hope to see you at the Friends meeting.
Until then, I am, sincerely yours,
Gloria Adomkaitis, Chairperson
