On Monday morning, the 6th of August, on the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Icon of Czestochowa stopped at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The small church was already full at 8:00 o’clock in the morning. Father Pavel Andżejevski celebrated Holy Mass and also gave the homily. After Mass, many of the faithful gathered had remained in quiet, individual contemplation before the countenance of the Black Madonna. Afterwards, during the devotional prayers, Father Rimantas Kaunietis reminded the faithful about the history of the Icon of Czestochowa.

In the afternoon, the Icon was carried in a solemn procession about 2 km through the city of Panevėžis to a hospice chapel, wherein Bishop Jonas Kauneckas solemnly received and greeted Our Blessed Mother in the Icon of Czestochowa. The bishop then proceeded to celebrate the Holy Mass with many of the hospice patients and their families participating. The mayor of the city of Panevėžis also participated in this celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

After the farewell has been made, the Icon was placed in the Life Mobile and conveyed into the hands of Father Tadas and a group of the faithful from the neighboring diocese in Šiauliai.
