Blessed Jurgis Matulaitis, MIC

On Tuesday, January 27th the Catholic Church both universally and in particular the Lithuanian Hierarchy commemorate the Memorial of Marian Archbishop Jurgis Matulaitis, MIC. Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Shrine Parish in Chicago’s Marquette Park community joins with all Lithuanian parishes throughout the world in prayer for the canonization of this saintly man; the Renovator of the Marian Congregation of the Immaculate Conception. His ministry here in Chicago is still alive and well on the Marian Campus in the West Lawn community where the Lithuanian newspaper DRAUGAS is still published…let us join in prayer for that final miracle to bring this man to sainthood…

Francis Cardinal George, OMI blesses the mosaic and relic of Blessed Jurgis Matulaitis at Nativity BVM here in Chicago…
