Bishop's Message

I always call the pastoral centre as the heart of the diocese and it is true that from here the entire faithful of the archdiocese receive constant vigor and zeal to all the various sections from different walks of life. In this regard the archdiocese of Bangalore is blessed by the grace of God and the strenuous efforts of our beloved archbishop emeritus Bernard Moras, we have a self sufficient, spacious pastoral centre equipped with the best affordable facilities.

The archdiocese is blessed to feature 22 different pastoral commissions apart from many pious associations and groups. I expect that not only these commissions meet from time to time to organize different programs and seminars, but also see to it that these wonderful ministries reach to the peripheries of the archdiocese. I exhort all commissions to be vibrant than dormant, dynamic than static bringing the best results to the expectations made to every commission. May God continue to bless the archdiocese in all its initiatives through the intercession of st francis xavier the patron of the archdiocese.

Most Rev. Dr. Peter Machado
Archbishop of Bangalore
