Ever since the start of the quarantine in mid-March there has been a continuous streaming of Holy Masses over internet channels. One original way it was done from Chicago, Illinois (where our province is active in providing pastoral care for Lithuanian-Americans) was by using Microsoft Teams to switch to different people from wherever they were: so the Eucharist would be celebrated in Chicago, the first reading read from Vilnius, the psalm sung from still somewhere else and so on. This way, a community of faith, separated by long distances was able to find together at the Mass not only passively like spectators but also by actively contributing to it. 

Since mid-May all our churches accepted people to „normal“ services in accordance to physical distancing rules of the government. These masses are still being streamed for those not able or not willing to show up in person. 

Multiple prayer, catechesis and sacrament preparation groups meet via messenger, hangout, zoom, meet and other platforms.
