Mangaluru, 22 Jun 2016: On the occasion of 75 th birth day of Most Rev Dr Aloysius Paul D Souza bishop of Mangalore felicitation programe was organized both diocesan and Mangalore Municipality corporation level on 21 June at Mangalore.


In the morning Bishop celebrated thanksgiving holy Eucharist with archbishops, bishops and priests along with faithful including ministers and political leaders at Rosario Cathedral Church Mangalore. After the mass a short felicitation programme was organized during which bishop was honored by archbishops, bishops, Vicar general on behalf of diocese, political leaders, priests, sisters, family members, friends and faithful.


The Citizen Award was conferred on Bishop of Mangaluru Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza on the occasion of his platinum birthday celebration here at Townhall in the evening on the same day by MCC.


Former chancellor, NITTE University, Dr Shantaram Shetty in his congratulatory address said, “In felicitating our bishop, we are not felicitating an individual but recognizing the growth and vibrancy of our city of Mangaluru for the last 40 to 50 years.”


“He has contributed lot to the dioceses and people of the district through medical college, hospitals, engineering colleges and many other educational institutions. His simplicity and down to earth nature is commendable, despite holding such high position in the dioceses. Let us all support him in his mission of serving people. Let the good work continue, may Lord give him good health.” Archbishop added.



Adhyaksha of Ramakrishna Math, Swami Jitakamanandaji said. “People who are bestowed with God’s grace will shine bright in society. Bishop has lived sacrificial life for 50 years and served mankind. Serving as bishop of this region for 20 years is commendable. Religion has two aspects that is internal spiritual growth and service oriented approach. Bishop has evolved in both aspects and shown the people this is how one should live. He has been helping the people of this region to grow in spirituality and that is why he is honourable.”


“He has served the society and developed spirituality in people for as long as 50 years. I am proud to say that children of Ramakrishna Math study in Casia School. Since the students are poor bishop had given concession in fee which is continued even today. In order that poor people can be treated at low cost he has provided all the facilities in Fr Muller Hospital. This shows his concern for society. I wish that God blesses you with good health and your social concern be a beacon to all the people in society.” Swami Jitakamanandaji added.


Kathibul of Jumma Masjid, Mangaluru, Sadaqatul Faizi said, “Bishop Dr Aloysius Paul has given justice to his name by his service and concern for society. The name Aloysius is of a saint of 16th century whereas Paul is an apostle of Christianity. Bishop has lived his life like these saints with simplicity and service oriented approach. Aloysius means famous in war, bishop is indeed famous in war for fighting against the eradication of illiteracy. This is evident by Fr Muller Hospital, St Joseph’s Engineering College and other educational institutions. His simplicity and humble nature is commendable even though he is sitting on such a high position. I pray good health to bishop and wish he continues to serve the society for many more years.”
