Pilar, in the parish of Shirva of the Diocese of Udupi, is a scenic rural location where the foundation for the new church dedicated to INFANT JESUS was blessed by Most Rev. Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo, Bishop of Udupi, on 7.11.2015.
It was in response to the felt spiritual need of about 150 Catholic families of 5 Wards in and around Pilar that the church was planned by the Shirva parish. We have decided to inaugurate the church on 2.1.2018. However, a serious need of Rs 60 lakh has arisen in order to complete the project within the scheduled time. It is our fond hope that you will come to our aid by your generous helping hand. We appeal to you and the devotees of Infant Jesus to help us meet this urgent need of the new church. Your kind donation, be it big or small, will be gratefully accepted and recognized.
You may kindly send your kind donation through cash/ cheque / DD to:
INFANT JESUS CHURCH, PILAR or A/c. No. 01452200103540

We remain grateful to you.
