A new house of Carmelites in Udupi Diocese
We have a new house in the Diocese of Udupi. The inauguration was held on the 6th of November 2023. Rev. Fr. Silvestre D’Souza the Provincial Superior of the Carmelites of Karnataka-Goa Province cut the ribbon and Most Rev. Gerald Isaac Lobo blessed the house in the presence of the Parish Priest of Kalmady, Rev. Fr Baptist Menezes, the Provincial Councillors, Friars from Koteshwar community and representatives from Mangalore and Madanthyar communities. The Bishop presided over the Eucharist, during which he blessed the altar, the cross and the tabernacle and handed over the keys to Fr. Alwyn Sequeira the priest in-charge of this house. While thanking the Bishop Fr. Silvestre said, ‘Every Carmelite house in a Diocese is a house of prayer. St Teresa rejoiced each time the Blessed Sacrament was installed in a new foundation, which for her was the defining moment.” He thanked the Bishop for his guidance and constant support. The engineer Mr Allan D’Souza, contractor Mr. Maxim Correa and electric contractor Mr Prakash Andrade were felicitated. The Bishop recalled the hurdles we faced during the construction of the house, while appreciating the service of our friars in the Diocese. Fr Prakash D’Cunha the Councilor in-charge of temporalities oversaw the entire project and worked tirelessly to complete the project in time. Frs. Archibald Gonsalves and William Miranda, the pioneers to purchase this land and do the initial planning were remembered and thanked for their foresight. For the present, Fr. Alwyn Sequeira and Fr. John Sequeira will be residing in this house while being attached to the Koteshwar community. May God be glorified through this new presence!
