GOA MISSION CONGRESS
REPORT OF THE MEETING FOR FOLLOW-UP
(March 5, 2009)

By Fr. Saturnino Dias

A Meeting on “Goa Mission Congress” was held on March 5, 2009 at the Archbishop’s House, Panjim, called especially to work out a plan for a proper follow-up and missionary revival in Goa. It began with the singing of the Theme Song of the Mission Congress.
The Archbishop welcomed the 28 participants representing the key institutions of the Archdiocese. He appreciated and thanked Fr. Saturnino Dias and the Executive and Core Committees for their hard work and dedicated collaboration to make the Goa Mission Congress successful. He said, Fr. Saturnino’s past experience in organizing the Asian Mission Congress must have certainly helped to achieve such success within a very short time.

On the Threshold

 

   ON THE THRESHOLD

                                                                                               Msgr. Francis Correa.

The Regional Mission Congress to be held in Goa is almost on the threshold. The month of May opens with the inauguration of this Regional event, reminding us once again of our responsibility towards evangelization enshrined in the missionary mandate of Our Lord. The mandate of Jesus Christ ‘Go and proclaim… (Mk. 16:15) is also relevant till today even for our own times. Therefore, the Mission Congress that is to take place within a few weeks is an occasion for each one of us to make an attempt for introspection – trying to enter deep within oneself to see whether one has responded correctly and generously to the Last Will and Testament of the Risen Lord proclaimed at the Mount of Olives when going up to His heavenly Father.

GOA MISSION INAUGURATED

Archbishop Lighting the Lamp"The Church established by Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit has been Celebrating the Love of God in these last twenty centuries either by the Sacramental Life, or her witness to Love, or through the proclamation - this is as well the story of the love of God" said the Archbishop Patriarch Filipe Neri Ferrao to 400 strong participants representing 164 parishes of the Archdiocese of Goa and Daman which also include around 100 faithful from the Mission of Daman. He was speaking at the inauguration of the Goa Mission Congress, being held at Pilar. He also said that the gift of faith, proclaimed in Goa by the missionaries coming from the west, completes 500 years next year. This same soil gave Missionaries and to the other Eastern Countries so as to allow the faith to go spreading. And so God’s Love was always celebrated by the Christian faithful in Goa.

PRESS NOTE

The Archdiocese of Goa and Daman will organize the 'Diocesan Mission Congress' in Konkani on the theme 'Devachea Mogacho Somarombh' (Celebration of God's Love) at Pilar from 6 to 8 February. Over 500 people from 161 parishes from all over Goa, including 59 from Daman, Diu & Dadra Nagar Haveli will be attending the meeting together with Archbishop-Patriarch, M. Rev. Filipe Neri Ferrao, Archbishop-Patriarch Emeritus, M. Rev. Raul Nicolau Gonsalves and the Bishop of Sindhudurg, M. Rev. Alwyn Barreto.
