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.


Faith in God Moves Mountains.

i. The Provident Fund slips of the employees of St Vincent’s Convent School, Berhampur, Orissa from 1991 to 2001 were not released due to the clerical fault in the Provident Fund Office. The management of the school was asked to pay the penalty to the tune of Rs four lakhs for no fault of their own. Hence the school authorities sought the assistance of the Provident Fund Commissioner at Delhi. But the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner at Berhampur was unmoved and unwilling to change his stand. We requested the sisters, the staff and the students to intercede through Msgr RFC Mascarenhas. Very soon there was a change in the attitude of the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner who passed an order in September 2001 and released the Provident Fund slips free from having to pay any penalty.

ii. The construction of Oriya Medium School in Berhampur, Orissa was held up for a number of years due to the delay in approving the building plan by the Block Development Authority at Berhampur. After waiting patiently and praying incessantly for several months through the intercession of Msgr RFC Mascarenhas, the plan was sanctioned by the Block Development Authority.

iii. We were in need of a good water source. The water diviner located the spot and assured us that there is good water source and water would be available without having to drill deep. We were worried and anxious when water was not found even after drilling to a level of 300 feet deep. To add to our anxiety we were told that there is no chance of finding water even to a depth of 450 feet. We had recourse to God through the intercession of Msgr. RFC Mascarenhas and next morning we had the good news of finding sufficient water as an answer to our prayers. We thank and praise the Lord for answering our prayers and granting our requests.
