The Lithuanian Catholic Church has started raising funds to help rebuild the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, which was severely damaged in a fire earlier this week.

The Sisters of the Assumption congregation and Blessed Teofilius Matulionis High School say they have opened a bank account for donations.

They note in their call for donations that the French Catholic Church has helped the Lithuanian Catholic Church in various ways in its recovery from the Soviet persecution.

Donations from around the world for the restoration of the fire-ravaged cathedral reached around €900 million on Wednesday.
