    We read so much and also learnt so much about the newly established church in a place called Pilar that has been just inaugurated in Udipi Diocese under the leadership of Rev. Fr. Vishal. There must be something nice about Pilar, a place we have never heard or known before. There must be something great about Fr Vishal who must have proved himself extremely praiseworthy and deserving so much of publicity.

    May God bless Fr. Vishal and also the newly established parish in all their religious as well as humanitarian causes. May the people of Pilar Parish flourish in every possible way, and may they prove themselves exemplary Christians so that many others will be able to watch them and their future role in life. If and when we get any future opportunity we would like to visit Pilar and pay our respects to Fr. Vishal and also the Pilar Church.
