Servant of God Mgr Raymond Francis Camillus Mascarenhas, the former Vicar General of the Diocese of Mangalore and the Founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany was a holy priest of the Diocese of Mangalore. His memory is fresh in us, though he went to his eternal abode in the year 1960. He is remembered for his pastoral zeal and commitment.

Mgr Mascarenhas was a renowned educationist of his time and visualized education as a means to give life and transform the ignorant, especially the poor and the girls.


Gift of a Child

We, Anil and Janet belong to Kanajar Parish. We were married for 10 years but did not have a child. We were desperate and desirous of having a child. On one occasion, we had been to Moodubelle Church and accidentally happened to meet Sr Elnora from Loretto Convent, Moodubelle. We shared our sorrow with her. She listened to our agony and assured her prayers. She also explained to us about the Servant of God Msgr R F C Mascarenhas, the Founder of Bethany and his powerful intercession. She also gave us the prayer leaflet and asked us to pray for the gift of child to God through his intercession. We left for Dubai with much hope and joy in our hearts. Within a year we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy through the intercession of Msgr R F C Mascarenhas. Our heartfelt gratitude to Sr Elnora and my sister Babita for their prayers.

Anil and Janet, Kanajar
