Mangaluru: As per the directions given by the Laudato Si committee of Mangalore diocese; the Guardian Angel Church, Angelore celebrated both occasions on 08.07.2020.

Mr Keshav Maroli and Mr Sandeep Garodi, two corporators of the M.C.C. were the chief guests. Mr Keshav speaking on the occasion said when a house is built then at least 30% of the total site should be set aside for the plants and vegetables then only the nature remains peaceful and healthy. He lauded the programme initiated by the church community to protect Mother Nature. Fr. William Menezes the Parish Priest said that we need to protect the nature and handover to the future generation in a better way than what we have received and that’s why we have taken measures to plant 350 saplings in our church compound and adequate measures have been taken for the Jalabandan. While distributing a flower plant to each ward representatives he urged the parishioners that the entire Parish should take up this noble cause.

Mr Noel Pinto, the Vice President of the PPP welcomed the gathering, Mr. Felix Moras proposed the vote of thanks and the Secretary PPP Mrs Lolina DSouza compered the programme, where good number of the parishioners attended.
