Diocesan Centre for Social Communications Media
There is a heightened awareness throughout Goan villages and towns about the value of land and concerted steps are being taken for its protection. Our own Body, The Council for Social Justice and Peace, and the various Social Action Fora/Cells it has helped to create in our parishes, have definitely contributed in this direction. On the other side, in recent times, the Archdiocese itself is accused of being involved in actions that it has been denouncing through its channels. We refer particularly to the land deal executed by it over the island of Vanxim.

"It would be expected, therefore, that the Parish House and the Parish office be transformed into a hub where the information, vies and ideas flow in and out after they are informed with the teachings of Jesus and the Church;"
