  • Lietuva -- January 05, 1900

    We, the Committee of the Lithuanian Roman-Catholic Parish the Providence of God, see the necessity of establishing in Chicago another Lithuanian parish than that which was incorporated in 1895.

    Therefore, we appeal to all the Roman-Catholic Lithuanians who feel that they need another parish in Chicago, come to the meeting on Saturday, January 6, 1900, at 7 P. M., Szemaitis Hall, 632 S. Canal St. If other nations can uphold several parishes, the Lithuanians also can have another parish. All the Lithuanian Catholics are invited.


    P. S. Those who want to get more information about this new parish affairs, call at the parish secretary, Alex Gudenauskis, 55 W. 15th St., Chicago.
