Friends, the Lithuanian-American Community of Greater St. Louis is having a fall festival this Sunday, Oct. 23, at the beautiful church built by Lithuanian immigrants in East St. Louis. I wonder if Senator Dick Durbin’s family (his mother came from Lithuania as a toddler) worshiped there when he was growing up…?

I know this is late notice–but I just learned of the event. The celebration starts with a genuine Lithuanian mass, followed by a luncheon, entertainment, and more. Should be nice to experience a community larger than our own, and still with a Lithuanian church. Check out the schedule below, and don’t worry about the RSVP deadline. The mass is certainly open, and you may still even be able to attend the dinner and entertainment afterwards. Contact the organizers through their FaceBook page.
