It was a joyful and memorable event for the parishioners of newly established St Antony’s Parish, Kandlur when their shepherd the Bishop of Udupi, Rt. Rev. Dr. Gerald Lobo paid his first pastoral visit to them from 02nd to 03rd February, 2019. Rev. Fr Canute Barboza, the Parish Priest and the parishioners extended a warm welcome to him on 02nd evening. The preliminary rites in the Church were followed by visit to the cemetery.

The Bishop had a session on the catechism for the candidates who were to receive the sacrament of confirmation. He spent time with the Sick members of the parish. This was followed by his meeting with the YCS and ICYM members.

On 03rd February, the Confirmation Mass was celebrated with great joy. 10 children were administered the Sacrament of Confirmation. In his homily during the Mass, the Bishop preached on the importance of family life.

After the Mass, the Bishop had meetings with several groups, viz. Commission for Women, Parish Pastoral council, Finance Committee, Catechism teachers, SVP, ICYM, YCS and Third order. He attended the S.C.C. meeting in a ward. He concluded the entire pastoral visit and left for Udupi at around 6:00 p.m.
