    I love the sketch of the Saligao church … feast of Mae de Deus is coming up, and i am sure that preparations are on in full swing, as only Saligao knows how. Childhood memories are full of the salves, vespas, petromax lamps in the fields, as the vendors sold bhajjias, Dilip’s posro reeking of hot bhajjias … feast day in all its splendour … my heart does belong to Saligao. Boas Festas to all and God bless Fr. Nascimento.

    Dear Fr. Nascimento,

    It was heartening to note that ” The Saligao Serenade website is dedicated to Michael and Lina Mascarenhas as a token of love and gratitude on their Golden Wedding Anniversary”.

    Saligao stands tall among Goan villages with a rich heritage. One question that most Saligaonkars are unfamiliar with is how our amazing forefathers, who were of modest means, were able to raise the funds needed to build such a beautiful Church in Saligao so many decades ago.

    It would be key for future generations to know who some of these pioneering village elders were, how they conceived the unique church structure and how they financed this huge undertaking.

    As I happen to know that you are among our Goan historians, possessing vast knowledge of such key facts, it would be great if you could find the time to consider researching the above for our benefit.

    God bless,

    Rudy Fernandes
