bombay catholic sabha

The Bombay Catholic Sabha stands committed to its mandate of leading the laity in Civic, Political and Social activities. Its vision statement is to create a just society through involvement in socio, civic and political affairs. The new area, into which the Bombay Catholic Sabha has decided to venture into, is Empowering Christian youth to enter into Civil Services.

The Rosary Church unit was formed on July 28, 1996, under the Chairmanship of Ms. Antoinette Vaz and 26 Managing Committee Members who actively involved themselves in bringing up the Unit. Our Unit members were instrumental in starting the Bombay Catholic Sabha in the neighbouring Parishes.

The activities of the Bombay Catholic Sabha are broadly categorised as standing up for rights, civic activities, political activities, social activities, environment protection, inter-religious dialogue and communal harmony, government minority schemes, BCS help desk and youth-related activities.

Priest in Charge: Fr. Nigel Barrett

  • Meeting Time: Third Thursday of the month at 7:30 PM

  • Frequency: Once a month

The BCS conducts meetings on the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM, with a monthly gathering to discuss and execute a wide range of social and civic initiatives aimed at the welfare of the parish. Their collaborative efforts extend to neighbouring parishes to jointly work towards the betterment of the community.

Their multifaceted activities encompass organizing career guidance courses, facilitating 'meet your candidate' sessions during political elections, providing ushering and security for parish functions, awarding scholarships to students from the parish, coordinating Christmas celebrations, arranging medical camps, hosting get-togethers for members, visiting local police stations, and establishing interactions with local police and other authorities.
