May I urge all the Heads of the Institutions both Diocesan and Religious to give priority to the Catholic students in our educational institutions. It will be a great help and encouragement to our students to come up in life. It is our duty and obligation to serve our people especially the Catholics. Having this in mind, kindly admit the Catholic Students especially those who are socially and economically weak when they approach you for admission in your respective institutions.


This is to remind all the priests of our Diocese that the annual retreat for the clergy will be held at St.Theodore’s Sanatorium, Wellington. The retreat starts on 23rd and ends on 28th September 2018. I request all the priests of our Diocese to mark these dates of retreat and participate in the annual retreat without fail.


The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus the patron of our Diocese and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us re-consecrate the whole Diocese to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May I also request all the priests, religious and the laity to pray for me and the Diocese so that God may shower His choicest blessings upon all of us


I express my earnest and sincere sentiments of gratitude to Rev. Fr. Sagayadass for his service to the Diocese. I wish all the best to Rev. Fr. Sagayadass who pursue his higher studies in Bangalore.
