I started working for the Collaborative in October of 2015. I was thrilled to be back in South
Boston, my home town, and even more excited to be able to be a part of the wonderful ministry at
St Monica’s. I had worked in the banking business of over 25 years and for the Archdiocese for
over 20 years in many different capacities in religious education, administration, finance and
Coming to South Boston and working with such wonderful priests and deacons has enabled me
to work in my professional field but, more importantly, to serve and minister to our community. I
feel I have been blessed with the best of both worlds.
Gloria Adomkaitis, Co-Director - Lithuanian Apostolate
A third generation parishioner of St. Peter Lithuanian parish, my husband, Algis, and I
attended St. Peter Lithuanian parish school and have been active parishioners all
our lives. I spent many years working within the Boston Public Schools and the many managerial and administrative skills that I developed during my employment have contributed greatly to my
participation in parish life.
Serving as Co-Director of the Lithuanian Apostolate is an honor and serious responsibility. The goal of the Apostolate is to maintain and strengthen Lithuanian liturgy within the parish and to conduct outreach to newly arrived immigrants. We enroll and teach children in Christian Education classes and organize First Communions and Confirmations. Our parish is largely a commuter parish with parishioners traveling significant distances to attend Lithuanian mass at St. Peter’s.
I grew up in a small Polish parish in northern NJ.
When I graduated college, I worked a position for IBM. Most of my jobs were marketing related.
I enjoyed the people contact of those positions. For 23 years I was also in the Naval Reserve traveling - mostly in Europe.
After I retired Father Peter offered me a position at St Monica’s Parish and it has been a good
experience for me. I am particularly fond of the “Sisters Garden of Prayer and Peace”. Growing
up, my father had me working in greenhouses. It is so rewarding to witness God’s gift of plants
and flowers growing and to hear from people passing by how much they appreciate and enjoy
the beauty of Sisters’ Garden.
