Dr. Francis Serrao Sj Bishop of Diocese of Shimoga as the Director for the Family Counselling Centre for the Diocese of Shimoga. Few months back when I met him he shared his visioname and special call in preaching mission and strengthening the families in the Love of God.



Fr. Franklin D’Souza was born on October 22,1973 at Murkoth Palke village near Moodbidre. After his Primary studies at Guddeyangady, he completed his High School at Jain High School Moodbidre.

He was ordained by then Bishop of Diocese of Belgaum Most Rev. Bernard Moras at St. Ignatius Loyola Church, Paladka on 10th May 1999.


In 1999 he was appointed as Assistant Preist at Chitradurga’s substation Infant Jesus Church, Challakere. He served there till 2001. As he says here he underwent a life changing Christ experience. Ever since he started preaching his divine experience based on Word of God. In the year 2000 he met Bro. T. K. George who motivated him to proclaim good news in charismatic way.


From 2001 to 2003 he was appointed as Parish Priest of Our Lady of Victories Church at Nagar (Hosanagar Taluk), mean time he served as Diocesan Youth Director. In 2003 he was appointed as staff member for St. Peter’s Pontifical Seminary. Here he again discovered his mission to preach the Word of God. In 2005 he was appointed as Diocesan Youth Director as well as Catholic Charismatic Director for the Diocese of Shimoga, same time he was the joint secretary for the Karnataka Regional Youth Commission. In 2008 Karnataka Regional Bishops Conference appointed him as Secretary for the Karnataka Regional Youth Commission as well as Karnataka Regional Youth Director. He travelled and motivated youth all over Karnataka.


Recognising his special charism in motivating youth as well as helping them to have Christ experience in 2011 he was appointed by the Catholic Bishops Conference of India as the Secretary for the CBCI Youth Council as well as the National Youth Director. After completing his term in August 15th, 2015, he took 8 months sabbatical leave.


On the month of May 2016 he returned back to the Diocese of Shimoga. He was appointed as the Rector as well Parish Priest at Shrine of Our Lady of Health, Harihar. Within a year he brought spiritual revival among the parishioners as well as pilgrims. Here he spend much time in personal prayer and contemplation. After contemplating and listening to his inner voice inspired by the Holy Spirit he decided to commit full time in preaching and healing mission. Uderstanding his special Charism, mission and call his bishop has given him new responsibility.

I wish him every success and God’s abundance blessings in his new mission.
