Mangalorean priest Fr Paschal Serrao (68) passes away

By Melwyn Pinto SJ

Varanasi, Aug 20 : Fr Paschal Serrao, a priest of the Diocese of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, passed away on Tuesday, August 20 due to a massive heart attack. He was 68. He is survived by seven brothers and three sisters.

He was one of the six priests in his family. His other brother priests include Fr Francis Serrao SJ, the Provincial of Karnataka Jesuit Province, Fr Celestine Sera SJ, Fr Gregory Serrao of Mangalore Diocese, Fr John Serrao SVD and Fr Lazarus Serrao SVD. One of his sisters, Sr Lilly Serrao is a nun belonging to the Sisters of Charity.

Born in 1945 in Moodbidri, Mangalore, Fr Paschal was a priest for 35 years. He joined the Varanasi Diocese and was ordained a priest in 1978. Most of his priestly life he spent in the missions and parishes of Varanasi Diocese. Presently he was the parish priest of Fathima Mata Church, Mawaiya, Varanasi.

His brother Fr Francis Serrao SJ describes Fr Paschal as a very devout and dedicated priest. “He was deeply human, simple in his life style, a man of few words and a man of depth,” he adds.

The other siblings of Fr Paschal are Mark Serrao, Felix Serrao, Marceline and Monthina.

The funeral of Fr Paschal will be held at the Cathedral of Varanasi on Thursday, August 22.

Dear Serrao Family,
My heartfelt condolences to all of you, brothers and sisters of Fr. Paschal. I came in contact with Fr. Paschal even before he joined the seminary. He was a hard working person and man of few words and very spiritual too. May the Good Lord whom he served faithfully grant him the crown of glory in His Heavenly Kingdom.

Great loss to the church as Fr. Serrao was a missionary in North India diocese. What a great contribution of his family to the church 6 priests and a nun. The sacrifice of his parents is really praiseworthy. We will certainly note this at least during Fr. Serrao's death time as he sacrificed his life for the church. May Almighty God give him eternal bliss and may God give the courage to his family and priests of the parish to bear this loss.

Heartfelt condolences to Serrao family.
A family totally fulfilling missionary work that is part of Christian faith. Everyone at home, priests, nun and laity, is so dedicated to prayers and religious life that you will easily recognize the discipline inculcated by their parents.

Everyone who has sacrificed so much will be rewarded abundantly in eternal life. As St Mathews in yesterday's Gospel writes: And everyone who has left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or property for my name's sake will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life.
May eternal rest be granted to Fr Paschal.
