A large number of Pamboorites led by the parish priest, Fr. Charles Lewis, who was also the former parish priest of Belle arrived in a bus and a tempo carrying the articles of ‘vojem’.

Lancy Saldanha, assistant parish priest, Mrs. Meera Lobo, secretary of the Belle Parish Pastoral Council, a number of Gurkars and other parishioners from Belle.
