The first mission of Ambassador Julius Pranevičius, as the newly accredited Ambassador of Lithuania to Sri Lanka, was the visit to Kandy (city in Central Sri Lanka), where Lithuanian born Apostolic Delegate, Vladislovas Mykolas Zaleskis (1852-1925), had established the Papal Seminary in 1893.
Some serious Delhi travellers, bikers and just adventure lovers could not get enough of stories, told by Rimas Bružas and Aurimas Mockus about their journey „From Baltics to Bengal“ at the „Kunzum Travel Cafe“ recently. The duo followed the route of the prominent Lithuanian traveller Antanas Paškevičius (Poška) trip to India 90 years ago.
Renowned Lithuanian Catholic priest Fr. Ričardas Doveika has visited India recently. During his trip he specially paid a visit to the former cathedral of Lady of Mt. Carmel and St. Joseph in Verapoly (Kerala), where the Holy Mass in Latin language was held in commemoration of the Lithuanian-born Catholic bishop Nicolaus Szostak, locally known as bishop Florence. It was in this cathedral that Nicolaus Szostak had served as Vicar Apostolic for 22 years (1751-1773) and was burried after his death.
