In a sense, the Lithuanian Church Chronicle Foundation continues the mission of the Soviet-era underground publication The Chronicle of the Catholic Church in Lithuania, promoting the telling of the truth about the human person and society in the light of the faith by making use of the means of communication.
Cardinal Sigitas Tamkevičius SJ founded this charity and support foundation in 1998. Today it is controlled by the Archdioceses of Kaunas and Vilnius and Cardinal Tamkevičius.
The foundation works with the Christian media and individual content producers to promote social and spiritual change and encourage critical thinking in society so that as many people as possible might seek true freedom, fullness of life and growth in faith.
The Church Chronicle Foundation:
- supports Lithuanian Catholic media initiatives that contribute to the Catholic Church’s mission, helping them to increase their quality, effectiveness and sustainability;
- organizes projects for the training and formation of Catholic communication professionals so they can continually improve their communication activities;
- encourages collaboration between Lithuania’s different Catholic media organizations as a way for them to operate more effectively and have greater impact;
- works to obtain the financial and human resources needed to achieve the foundation’s objectives.
