In January 1977 the Federal Executive returned to Sydney for a two year term of office. The Federal Executive, under the presidency of Prof. Algimantas Kabaila and with the approval of the ALC Federal Council, incorporated the Lithuanian Community Publishing Society for the purpose of administering and publishing "Mūsų Pastogė" and handed over "Mūsų Pastogė" to it on December 1, 1977. This body is currently the publisher of "Mūsų Pastogė" and it continues to maintain close contacts with the ALC Federal Executive and reports to the ALC Federal Council. The appearance of "Mūsų Pastogė" changed during its 50 year history. Starting with a 4 page newspaper (a page of which the then obligatory page in English), it has now become an 8 page weekly. Gradually within existing financial constraints the publication technology was improved (thanks to helpers, in particular Prof. Algimantas Kabaila and the late Fr. Povilas Martuzas). The setting out "Mūsų Pastogė" for publication no longer employs pasting up. Computerised setting out was brought in by Rita Baltušytė-Ormsby and has been further improved by the current editor, Dalia Doniela. For many years the paper has been printed by Media Press (first in Marrickville, later in Alexandria). From the middle of April, 2003, the printer is Spotpress, Marrickville.
