Priest Message

Dear Parishioners & Well-wishers of Udyavara Church.

Greetings of Joy & Peace to you from Rev.Fr Roque D’Souza. I am happy to be connected with you and to greet you on behalf of the Parish Community of St Francis Xavier Church, Udyavara, Udupi.

On the unique epoch making event of the inauguration on 28.04.2016, all of us are proud of our achievement of the new Church for its beauty and grandeur. With hard labor and generous support of our parishioners and well wishers, we have succeeded in accomplishing the project of building our third new Church. History section will give the details of our 1st and 2nd churches.

While getting ready for the inauguration and blessing of our new Church, all the other related aspects of our parish life are being recast these days. Our Website is one of them. It was started when we laid the foundation stone for the new Church on 22.05.2014. Mr Melwin Norohna and his team had worked for it. It has served very much our Parishioners and well wishers at home and abroad.

Now the Website needs upgrading to serve its visitors better. The task has been undertaken by Roshan Crasta and his wife Jovita Crasta. I thank them heartily for their committed work. I wish all the visitors and readers of our Website pleasant memories and spiritual bonding. Our Parish Church is our spiritual mother and home. May we all grow in the love and spirit of Jesus Christ, whom our Patron St Francis Xavier served aredently and dedicated his life to spread His message. Thank you very much.
