Welcome to LCRA!

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. „Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.“ Luke 6, 36–37

Dear Friends of Lithuanian Catholic Religious Aid,

Have a meaningful the Holy Year of Mercy!





Youth Day of Lithuania

Summer of Mercy

Dear Friends of Lithuanian Catholic Religious Aid,
This Jubilee Year of Mercy  Pope Francis wrote in an Apostolic Letter that “The Jubilee Indulgence is thus full, the fruit of the very event which is to be celebrated and experienced with faith, hope and charity”. All of us in our daily lives, as loving members of a family and community are witness to Christ’s living Church.

At the 2016 annual members’ meeting two new LCRA directors joined the ranks. We welcome Fr. Raimundas Bukauskas OFM, the Vicar and Treasurer of St. Anthony’s Friary in Kennebunk, ME and Tadas Gintautas Dabšys , active in the Lithuanian community and in Lithuanian Scout Association, from Los Angeles, CA.

Many of you may have stopped by the LCRA information table at the Dance Festival in Baltimore, MD. We are reaching out at these Lithuanian community events to spread the news of the good works that LCRA donors have done supporting Catholic educational, religious and social outreach projects in Lithuania and its diaspora. Some of you may have picked up the LCRA bracelets with the reminder “Love one another” , that we handed out as a reminder of our goal. It gives me great pleasure to share with you that this Spring LCRA’s donors granted $416,985 to worthy projects in Lithuania and its diaspora! Thank you!

Join us in remembering that we must “Love one another” Jn 13, 34-35, in this  Jubilee Year of Mercy.

Your commitment to a vibrant catholic community in Lithuania and its diaspora is a blessing to many.
