most occasions Fr. Mc Andrew managed to be with the
Mgr. Gutauskas at all his services. He succeeded the
Mgr. in 1980 when he was forced to retire due to ill-
health and old age. At that time there were 680 Lithuanian
in the parish. Since the death of Mgr. in April 1983
Fr. Mc Andrew carried on as Chaplain to the community
at the request of Bishop A.Deksnys. Unfortunately
he did not do it officially so Fr. Mc Andrew was working
unofficially until Bishop P Baltakis took over and
the Scottish Hierarchy made the appointment official.
Today the Lithuanian
Community consists of about 10 Displaced Persons.,

second and third generation and a few fourth generations.
The St Kazimir Society
(The Parish) has only a small percentage of these
and only a small percentage are paid up members refer
