Message from our Shepherd

My Dear Sisters and Brothers, 

                                      Over the last 14 years, I have seen how this diocese has developed and grown, all of it can be attributed to the fruitful clergy-laity collaboration, supported by our religious sisters and brothers. 

The Diocese of Sindhudurg is truly living up to its missionary calling by being a 'spiritual home' for thousands of Catholics. We have faced challenges in the past but we have triumphed, and we will continue to face challenges even in the future, but with Christ as the centre of our diocese, we will continue to overcome those challenges.

Through this portal, I hope to showcase our diocese to the world, wherein they will read about us and get to know about our Chris-centric mission and get inspired. 

I earnestly pray to God, through the intercession of Our Lady of Miracles, the patroness of our diocese for the fulfilment of your intentions. 

In Christ,

†Bishop Alwyn Barreto
