    Big Thanks to Daijiworld for giving us the goodnews about the New Church at Dahisar, Bombay. Soon after my priestly Ordination on 29 April, 1986 I was sent to Dahisar as an assistant priest. As a young priest I was full of joy and enthusiasm to be at Dahisar and to work for the people. I loved Dahisar and the people of Dahisar very much. My greatest dream at this time was to have a beautiful church built in this place.

    Unfortunately the situation of that time did not allow us to see our dream realised inspite of our attempts to solve the problems. God's ways were different. Today I read with great joy and happiness that the Holy Cross Fathers have built the new church and a school building for the glory of God. I congratulate the Holy Cross Fathers for their wonderful work in Dahisar. I rejoice with them and thank God for it. My heart is filled with joy. Congratulations also to all the people at Dahisar!
