Fr. Peter is an excellent priest and a wonderful person. We are really blessed to have him.

You are absolutely right Mr. Victor Castelino, Fr. Peter is a calm and soft spoken, rare personality and he attends all the communities equally. Recently he offered Konkani mass here also while Fr. Anand was on vacation. We are really fortunate to have him as our Parish Priest here in Doha.

Fr Peter has a personal touch in everything that happens in the parish. We in Dubai feel his absence very badly. Many may not believe that he once even offered mass in konkani for the benefit of the konkani community in Dubai! You people in Doha are lucky to have him as your parish priest. Am I right Victor? Happy feast to all.
