‘We cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard’ (Acts 4:20).

The Sisters of Divine Providence in Utena, Lithuania truly live these words of Peter and John. They organise regular retreat days for young people and adults, care for women who have had abortions, and generally help believers and unbelievers alike.

For they want everyone to see and hear how God works in their lives. And there are many who come to their ‘House of Evangelisation’, including many young people, seeking spiritual counsel or simply wanting to pray before the Blessed Sacrament. The house is becoming a beacon of hope in the region.

But it has become too small and needs to be extended. We have promised our help for this purpose – how can we remain silent and not respond when divine Providence calls?
