Rev. Sr. Noelle Marie of Sacred Heart of Jesus

A young talented girl completes her SSLC exam with flying colors from the local National Higher Secondary School (Todays National Junior College) in May 1960. The then Headmaster of the High school, Shri.

  • Rev. Fr. Patrick Rodrigues…..a priest with a difference….

    This is a story of 1978, some 40 years back; I had just appeared my First PUC exams in May in the local National Junior College, Barkur, and waiting for results. In the same May, 4th, 1978, our next door neighbor Rev. Fr. Anthony Fernandes priestly ordination was held at Milagres Church, Mangalore, along with five other priests. It caught our attention of the one who spoke so impressively, to express their gratitude to the then Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Basil S. D’Souza and others. When we saw Fr. Patrick Rodrigues, the man spoke on that day, as the replacement of Rev. Fr. Henry D’Souza, the founder of CYM Barkur, as our new Assistant Parish Priest, on 23rd May, 1978, our hearts filled with great joy………to herald a new era of youth triumph in Barkur…!
