Abstract: The first church in Sunskai (called Sumska and Sumskai until the beginning of XX century) was built in 1795. The building of this first church was the main reason for an active religious and public life in the area. The building process itself called for the solidarity of the people and made an impact on forming the leadership in the region. With the guidance of the same leadership of the people the school and the trading activities come into existence. The builder of the church was Stanislovas Stadalnykas, wh was assigned here by the bishop of Vilnius. S. Stadalnykas' assignment was from 1795 to 1814. During this time the church and the rectory was built under his guidance. Around 1803 another parish building which was designated to accommodate another priest was erected by the management of father Stadalnykas. This fact testifies that the parish community increased in size. Sunskai at that time was a filial church of Vilkaviskis parish. The priests who worked here were administrators on behaved of Vilkaviskis pastoi. The names and serving times of such priests are: Anupras Cerskis 1814-1819, Martynas Sinkevicius 1819-1825, Severinas Jekelaitis 1826-1837, Jonas Burdulevicius l837-1838, Vincas Bebrinykas 1838-1859 and Jurgis Kudirka 1859-1868 who was assigned the special task of building the new church. The inventory book of the church and parish is well kept and holds many notes on liturgies vestments, liturgical books, data on administration of the sacraments, various things in the rectory, land and cemetery. The inscription on the church stone testifies that the new church was finished in 1866. The new church was built where the former sanctuary and the cemetery used to be. The new church which holds the title of St. Mary of Magdala was consecrated in 1867 on 24 of September by the bishop of Seinai Irenij Konstantin Liubenski. The church was beautifully built and decorated, equipped with liturgical and other necessary tools.[...]
