Welcome to Our Site...

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.


I have fond memories of the Bethany Convent Chapel at Bendore because I received my first Holy Communion at this place and Mnsgr. Mascarenhas gave me the First Holy Communion more than seventy years ago. Those were the simple but happy days to remember. Those were the humble days where we were just happy and satisfied with all that we had, and God was kind and merciful to us.

I still remember the Bethany nuns gave us a nice breakfast after the First Holy Communion. It was simple bread and butter with a small banana, but it was a great treat, and the Bethany nuns were kind and generous to us.

All those kind blessings that we cherished from the time we received the First Holy Communion are still within us, and we are grateful for all that God has given us.
