Mangalore, 6 Aug 2013: Fr Stanislaus R Pereira (mostly known as Fr Stanly Pereira) who is a priest of the diocese of Mangalore passed away on Tuesday August 6 in the morning in Little Sisters of the Poor, Home for the Aged situated in Bajjodi-Mangalore because of old age and physical weakness. He was 88 years old and a priest for the last 60 years.


Bishop of Mangalore Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza and Msgr Denis Prabhu, the vicar general of the diocese of Mangalore have condoled his death.


He was born at Kemmannu parish on November 13, 1925. After joining St Joseph’s Seminary, Mangalore and after the priestly studies, he was ordained a priest of the diocese of Mangalore on April 7, 1953.



He was the assistant parish priest of Karkal after the ordination for 6 years. Later he was the assistant parish priest of Derebail for 2 years, Cascia for one year and Bantwal for 2 years. He was the founder parish priest of Pakshikere for 11 years from 1964 to 1975. After being the director of social communications for 6 years, he was the parish priest of Bendore for 6 years, Udyavar for 7 years and Kallianpur-Milagres for 10 years.


Because of health reasons he voluntarily retired from the active priestly ministry in 1994. As retired priest he was residing at his family house in Kemmannu for 12 years and then offered spiritual ministry for 7 years (2006-2013) at Little Sisters of the Poor, Home for the Aged.


’He was ready to work for the good of the diocese of Mangalore. He co-ordinated his activities and programs with the will of the superiors and looked ahead in view of the progress of the people’ said Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza, Bishop of Mangalore.


’He was a friend, philosopher and guide to the people of high and low profile. And as to guide people he has undertaken journeys after journeys across the state, nation and globe’ said Msgr Denis Prabhu, the Vicar General of the diocese.


’As spiritual guide at Little Sisters of the Poor, Home for the Aged, he was very jovial and spiritually insightful man. For 6 years he was going around meeting and speaking to the aged people of our home. He would crack jokes with them. For the past one year he could not move much because of his ill-health’ said Sr Marie Ann of Little Sisters of the Poor, Home for the Aged.


Fr Stanislaus R Pereira was a courageous priest, learned thinker, famous preacher and an undisputed leader much sought after by the people. People would approach him for any compromise and settlement as he had spell over men and matters.


As the founder spiritual guide of Catholic Sabha of the diocese of Mangalore he has nurtured it from its very infancy and given great orientation. He was one of the pioneers in getting the Deepika High School started in Modankap as assistant parish priest. He created Pakshikere Shrine out of nothing. From his very younger days he was able to solve many intriguing questions.


Even though he was not a medically qualified person he was known to be a person who has healed many persons especially from physico-psycho-spiritual sicknesses. He could liberate many people from superstitious and pristine beliefs.


His funeral Mass would be celebrated at St Jude Thaddaeus Church, Pakshikere at 10 am on Wednesday August 7 and the mortal remains would be interred at Pakshikere church cemetery.
