Message from Parish Priest

Dear Parishioners of Paldane and viewers of this website, with apology I wish to convey my message to you. Apology because it is over a month that I assumed the responsibility of this parish as its Parish Priest and I failed to say Hello! I am Sorry.

Hi, everybody! Thanks for your cordial and warm welcome on June 3rd, the day of my arrival as the parish priest. Happy to write that I got a rare privilege to meet our patroness blessed Mother Teresa when I was the managing editor of Raknno. Mother Teresa visited the Bishop’s house and I was then the managing editor of our Diocesan weekly Raknno.

Soon she will be a SAINT. In fact she was a “living saint, a saint of the gutter” as she was known.
As you know on September 4th Pope Francis will canonize Blessed Mother Teresa. To mark this great and historical event there will be a THANKSGIVING MASS on 5th September at 6.00 pm. Our Bishop will preside over the liturgy. You are welcome to this joyful celebration.

Prayers and Best wishes, along with my ongoing love and support!

- Rev. Fr. Vincent Victor Menezes
Parish Priest, Blessed Teresa of Kolkata Church, Paldane
