St. Peters Association (Barkur) Mumbai

We have mentioned on many an occasions, that there are more Barkurians in Mumbai than in Barkur, it’s a fact. As long back as in 1984, when few of us were about to formalize, the start of an Association, conducted a survey and it was confirmed by the statistics then, hold good even today. It’s almost a generation now, and the total number of Barkurian families settled in Mumbai must be doubled. Two events organized by SPA, viz, patrons feast in June and the public entertainment function generally held during November – Divali holidays, practically every year, are more than any formal Get-togethers, for us.

"Emirates Barkurians" formed in Dubai

It was long cherished dream for Barkurians residing at United Arab Emirates to gather and come under one umbrella. Though Barkurians have resided and thrived in the Emirates for more than half a century, it is the first time they came together in the name of the place and decided to form a formal association, thanks  to  His Excellency Bishop Henry D’ Souza of Bellari, who expressed a wish to meet Barkurians residing at the Emirates on his visit to Dubai. Barkur Parish is close to his heart as it is the only Parish the young Fr.Henry served some 37 years ago as an Assistant Parish Priest soon after his ordination as a priest. He won the hearts of Barkur Parishioners then within a span of two years and etched a permanent place there. The affection is reciprocal, he still remembers those parishioners by name and the Barkurgaars just love Fr.Henry.
