Today I thought of bulldozers disassembling St. Peterís Church.
It was devastating to visualize that event.† Condos built where our church once stood.
It made me think of the Hill of Crosses.†† Every time the Communists destroyed it, the Hill of crosses would grow once again.
Why canít we build our own Hill of Crosses
†in front of and around St. Peter Lithuanian Church?
Letís call to a Higher Power to protect our sacred ground
Take down a cross off your wall
Make one out of popsicle sticks or branches from a tree in your yard.
Do it in the name of a loved one,† or in the name of your family
Do it for Christ, and his holy mother Mary
Place a cross for
On October 31sst,† after the 10:30 Sunday Mass, there will be candlelight ceremony where we will be placing crosses, big ones, little ones, home made, store bought, sentimental onesÖ
We want† the archdiocese to know and understand that our church is a sacred place, and should not be disturbed.† In† the spirit of ďvelinesĒ or All Soulsí Day† letís remember† those who built St. Peter Lithuanian Church and letís† honor their memory by helping build our very own Kryziu Kalnas or Hill of Crosses.
Letís call† upon†
our Faith in God to save St. Peter Lithuanian ParishÖ , the same Faith
that† kept rebuilding† the Hill of Crosses in
Pass this idea on to a friend .
