Release of a book on the Carmelite heritage at Chimbel!

Mr. Fernando Dias Velho, an architect by profession, who has been involved with the Heritage Site at Chimbel, has published a book along with Dr. Sidh Losa Mendiratta, titled: The Church and Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Chimbel. They have painstakingly collected all the documents and pictures related to the Carmelite Tertiaries who lived there from 1747-1835 and systematically arranged them in the book, to give us glimpse of the rich legacy the Chimbel Carmelites have left behind.

The book was released at the hands of the Provincial on 27th of July, 2021 at Carmelite Monastery, Margao, in the presence of the Local Conservation Committee at Chimbel. Participation had to be restricted due to the ongoing pandemic and Government regulations for gatherings.

We acknowledge the contribution of Fr. Archibald Gonsalves (the previous local Superior) towards this publication, which will go a long way to help us in our efforts to reclaim the property. Fr. Provincial congratulated and thanked Mr. Fernando, who was present on the occasion. Dr. Sidh is currently based in Portugal.

Fr. Anthony D’Souza, who is a member of our community at Mapusa, has been authorized by the Archbishop-Patriarch of Goa and Daman, to assist the Parish Priest of Ribandar, by carrying out pastoral ministry at the Chapel of Our Lady of Livra-Febres, Chimbel.
