It is one of the largest parishes in the Archdiocese of Vilnius serving approximately 100,000 faithful. The parish has a wide variety of ministries, including: youth, prayer and family community groups, “Caritas”, Alcoholics Anonymous, Secular Franciscans Order (O.F.S.) and a worship group – “Hills”. The Discovery of the Holy Cross Church is a part of one of the largest Ways of the Cross in Europe. Constructed in the 17th century, Vilnius Way of the Cross was built to match the topography and actual distances in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus. For that reason, Vilnius Calvary is called “The City of Jerusalem”. A Holy Cross relic is venerated at this Church. It is the primary location for Pentecost celebrations in the Archdiocese of Vilnius.
