Parochila Administrator Welcomes You
Feel at Home
It is with great joy I, Fr. Clifford Castelino, Parochial Administrator of the Church of St. Anthony, Siolim welcome you all my dear parishioners; residing in Siolim and around the globe. I also extend our invitation to all other Christ faithful and people of goodwill to join us on the E-platform to share your valuable ideas and offer your loving fraternal support to each other.
It was Lt. Fr. Raul Colaco, who gave the ‘go signal’ to the proposal of redeveloping a website for the Church of St. Anthony, Siolim. His illness did not dampen the spirit of seeing the website on the cyber world. However, he did not get much time to experience the ease of communication and get connected to people around the globe at a click of a button. May his Soul rest in peace.
Our Profound Gratitude
The Late Mr. Sebastian Lazaro Florentino D’Cruz once wrote in one of his books, “ Just as all Goenkars have a taste for their rice and curry so also all Catholics love their village church. But my love to my church trancends far beyond this saying.” Following in the footsteps of his ancestors who had been working in our Siolim Church as Sacristians, he too dedicated 10 years of service as a Sacristian from 1945 to 1955.
