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.

Udayvar:Parishes celebrating 50th Death Anniversary of RFC

Indeed a great day had dawned in the history of Udayvar Church when the ‘father of the poor’ was rightly remembered on 21st November 2010. An Eucharistic celebration was solemnized by Fr Charles Norohna, the Parish Priest along with Fr William Martis the Assistant and Fr Prakash on the occasion of the 50th death anniversary of Mgr Raymond F C Mascarenhas, the Servant of God on the Feast of Christ the King.

Rev. Fr William in his homily said  that Mgr Raymond was a Messenger of God who understood and lived the kingdom values. He loved the people of Udayvar, understood their situation and worked selflessly for their spiritual, social and material welfare. The church that stands majestic even today is built by the Founder which  is a proof of his hard labour. He very well understood the Kingship of Jesus and lived it in his own life.
