Kundapur, Aug 26: "The emotional relations within us should blend like building a structure. Love and faith should augment in us," said Bishop Gerald Isaac Lobo, bishop of Udupi diocese.

The bishop gave his blessing address after laying the foundation stone for the new building of St Antony Church at Kandlur near here. Vicar var of Kundapur zone Fr Stany Tauro, parish priest of Kandlur church Canute Barboza, vice president Vinod D'Souza, organizer of 18 commission George D'Souza, Kerekatte church director Xavier Pinto and parish priest of St Philip Neri church Basrur Charles Noronha were present.

The Eurcharistic mass was held after the laying of foundation stone.

The Kandlur church was under the authority of St Philip Neri Church Basrur and was functioning as a prayer center. On June 10, 2016, it was declared as a separate parish by the Udupi Diocese. 54 families are living under this parish. The present church building was enough for only 75 people to pray. More than 120 people attend church services here. Keeping in mind the space constraint, it was decided to build a new, well-equipped building at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore. Accordingly, the foundation stone was laid on Saturday, August 24.
