Pastoral Letter for the Year 2016 - 2017

 New Pastoral Letter of the Archbishop Released

At the beginning of yet another Pastoral Year (2016-2017), the Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Most Rev. Filipe Neri Ferrao, has released his new Pastoral Letter at a simple ceremony held at Archbishop’s House, Panjim, this morning.

A Pastoral Letter is an open letter addressed by a Bishop to the priests, the laity and  all people of good will in his diocese. It generally contains  orientations for the life in a diocese. Archbishop Ferrao has regularly issued a Pastoral Letter at the beginning of every Pastoral Year (June to May). 

The theme of the new Pastoral Year as well as of the Letter is, Inspired By Venerable Fr. Agnelo, Let Us Witness To The Mercy of God. While keeping the general theme of the Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, the Letter focuses on the life of saintly Fr. Agnelo de Souza (1869-1927), a Priest of the Society of Pilar on the road to sainthood and venerated worldwide by thousands of Goans and non-Goans of various faiths.

The Pastoral Letter was printed by the the Pilar Printing Press and was handed over to the Archbishop for the release by the Vice-Postulator of the Cause of Fr. Agnelo, Rev. Fr. Hilario Fernandes, in the presence of the Superior General of the Society of  Pilar, V. Rev.  Fr. Francis Carvalho, his Counsellors Fr. Dominic Alvares and Fr. Fredrick Rodrigues, the Episcopal Vicar (Central Zone), Fr. Leonardo Sousa and the Secretary of the Archbishop, Fr. J. Loiola Pereira.

THE PLAN OF ACTION IN THE YEAR OF MERCY

The Team appointed by Archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrão has come out with a PLAN OF ACTION for the Year of Mercy and in particular for the season of Lent in the Archdiocese of Goa and Daman.

 

1. Clarification regarding the DOOR of Mercy:

In the Archdiocese of Goa and Daman, the Archbishop has officially opened only one Door and that is the Door of the Cathedral Church, Old Goa. All the priviledges that can be obtained by entering the Door of Mercy are reserved to the Door of the Cathedral Church. This priviledged Door is the side Door on the left side, if one faces the Cathedral Church. 

The Archbishop, has also designated four other Churches in the Archdiocese inorder to obtain the indulgences, to go on pilgrimages and to recite prayers.  (See Gonvllik Chitt No. 15). These are St. Jerome’s Church, Mapusa; Holy Spirit Church, Margão; Mother of the Poor Church, Tilamola and Holy Name Church, Praça, Daman.  In all these four Churches, the priviledge of entering through a special Door is not conceded, but one may enter through any Door to avail oneself of all the priviledges without procuring to enter through any special Door. 

Golden Verse

Jeremias 25:12

Punn sot’tôr vorsam bhòrlea uprant Babiloniechea razak ani tea raxttrak, tãnnim kel’lea vaitt kortubank lagun, Hanv khast laitolom. Uloita to Sorvespor! Mhonngê Kaldeikaranchea desak khast laitolom ani tea desachi sarkich dêsvatt korun sôddtolom.
