Khandamal, Odisha

I leave for Khandamal, Odisha to conduct two, two day programmes for the Priests of the Archdiocese on the invitation of the Archbishop of Bhubaneshwar, John Barwa. Kindly keep the Priests and me in your prayers. I will be back in Mumbai on December 15, 2012.
I will update my blog even from Khandamal.


  1. Dear Fr. Errol Fernandes s.j.,
    I wish you a safe journey and a fruitful mission at Khandamal, Odisha. We will surely keep you and the priest from Khandamal in mind during our prayers.
    Your daily presence in the mornings at our church porch will be missed by the parishioners.
    For those of us visiting your blog, you are just a click away.
    May Our Lord Bless You & Our Lady guide and protect you always

  2. Dear Fr. Errol

    Wishing you safe journey, pleasant stay, enriching programme and may HE who inspires you also inspire fellow Priests to do HIS will in the best and even when we are faced with the difficult moments.

    Our prayers are with you and Priests, always.
    God bless and Mama Mary interecede.
    Best Regards

  3. Dear Fr Errol,

    I hope you have a safe and fruitful trip to Khandamal. The name Khandamal has become synonymous with anti-Christian violence and persecution unfortunately. I wrote an article for OpenDemocracy here in UK after the pogrom in 2008. I believe things have calmed down there substantially even though justice has been very slow.

    I would like to congratulate you on keeping such a wonderful and inspiring blog as this. I'm glad I found it. Keep up the good work.

    Best wishes,
