Mangaluru, 13 Dec 2020: Catholic Sabha Mangaluru Pradesh® felicitated Walter Nandalike, founder of Daijiworld, Francis Maxim Moras, Traffic warden, Mangaluru and Dr Cyprian Monteiro, the joint director of public instructions, Marcel Monteiro, member, Karnataka state Planning Commission, Walter D Souza, former chairman of FIEO, were  honored during the function held here on Sunday December 13.


The conference was inaugurated by the Bishop of Mangaluru diocese Dr Peter Paul Saldanha and chaired by Paul Rolfy D’Costa, president of Catholic Sabha Mangaluru Pradesh.


Speaking after receiving felicitation, Walter Nandalike said, ‘When we work towards the society, we can’t restrict ourselves on a particular community or religion. It is our responsibility to respect and reach everyone without any discrimination of caste, creed and religion.’


‘We can’t judge a community by its few members or their fanatic thinking and hatred. When we fail to mingle and cope up with the people who hail from different communities, religions or their thoughts, then we also turn as fanatics,” Walter said.


When a person points out a community, for differences, automatically he will also turn as communal. When the ‘term’ society comes without our major fellow communities like Hindu and Muslim brothers we Catholics can’t do anything. So, it is the right way to live in society being social and brotherhood, he stressed.



Bishop of Mangaluru diocese already known for his ‘Bandhutwa’ message. In the past 2 years, Dr Saldanha fully emphasized dialogue between inter-faith and communal harmony oriented programmes. The members of Catholic community should carry forward Bishop’s mission and Catholic Sabha should lead them ahead, he added.


In his inaugural address, Bishop said, ‘Catholic Sabha is the face of our community in our society. The members of Catholic Sabha are the volunteers of Catholic community who always spread goodness to the society which comes from catholic principle, values and morals. At the same time in the community, they are like soldiers who are always ready to help the members of Catholic community. I appreciate Rolphie and his team for their success leading the community. When the community faced trouble they acted wise and when needed they rendered their selfless service. They won the hearts of society by their ‘Bandhutwa’.
