Hope for Christmas Mass

The Boston Herald featured a story about a priest whose South Boston parish — the only Lithuanian Catholic church in the region — sustained an estimated $100,000 in fire damage this weekend, possibly because he thinks he might have left an ember burning in the sacristy.

Still, Father Stephen P. Zukas said, he has been supported by his 1,300 parishioners, archdiocesan officials and other priests. He hopes to have the parish open in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas Masses.

“That’s what we’re hoping for. Hope is the key word,” Father Zukas said.

  1. Father Zukas emerges as a wonderful pastor: human, protective and concerned. It is refreshing to see a Roman Catholic priest portrayed so positively in the press. It is a shame that it took a potentially tragic event to bring him to the fore. It would be wonderful if the virtues of our priests more routinely got some reportage.
