Parish Priest Speaks
I do really consider myself fortunate to be a part of this historic jubilee year at Our Lady of Remedios Church, Nerul. Over the past 450 years, a lot of good work has occurred in this village, with active involvement of every parishioner. In this jubilee year, we strive to leave a legacy for our next generation to look up to, thus a number of projects have commenced that include establishment of the Blessed Sacrament Prayer Room, restoration of Altars and most importantly building a parish Community Centre. I take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website, I invite you personally to come and visit our parish, especially during our jubilee year and participate in our joy.

Marching towards 450 years of our Church.
In 2018, we will begin the celebrations to commemorate the 450 years of establishment of the church, that was set up in 1569. A lot of initiatives are planned to celebrate this occassion in an apt manner. As a parish that is constantly growing, it is an ongoing effort to build infrastructure and means to increase the spirituality in the parish, so that there are more souls taken to him. During the course of the next few years, various aspects of the Spiritual & Physical Church will be taken up. Your contribution, both in your talents, time and tithe will build a vibrant community
52 years back, the Nerul Communidade had initiated a process of gifting a 14,000 square metre land to the Parish for development of a Community Centre and playground to cater to the needs of the village and neighbouring villages. In September 2016, finally the land was officially handed over to the Fabrica and given a 4 year timeframe to build the same. Currently, there are many plans being discussed how to use the land appropriately. The development for the same will begin this year.Rs.0.00 donated of Rs.50,000,000.00 goal
A dedicated shrine to spend time with our Lord is needed in our parish. We have already set the ball rolling for the process of constructing the chapel at the entrance of the Church. The old grotto of Our Lady of Vailankanni has been moved out to a new grotto just to the left of the Church to make way for the Chapel. We have already received an approval in principle from the Bishop's House. The estimated cost given by the architect is Rs. 10 Lacs.Rs.0.00 donated of Rs.1,000,000.00 goal
