FOREWORD

Bishop's Logo
          In this 21st century, any organization intending to move with the current and keep abreast of the changes around, will not compromise on the question of having its own website.  A diocese having a website of its own, is no novelty; it is a necessity at present.   The computer has almost become a necessary piece of household furniture.  More and more people easily resort to it to pay bills, for online purchases, to update information and the like.   Revolutionary changes have been effected in commerce, education, politics, journalism, scientific research, international relations, cross cultural enrichment, because of interactions over the internet.  Not only do people communicate, they also understand better their lives and those of others.
Bishop Gerald Isaac Lobo

 

          The Pontifical council for social communications in its document, “The Church and Internet,” has made it clear that, in the work of evangelization the church finds it (inevitable) indispensable, to use the internet.  Its special character as a direct, immediate, interactive and participative medium have to be borne in mind while utilizing it for spreading the “Good News.”  Likewise, the church also cautions us, to be prudent, just, fearless and temperate in the use of internet-related services.

   
 

       It is a praiseworthy development that the diocese of Shimoga has its own website.  My thanks to Rev. Fr Clarence Dias, the Diocesan P.R.O., for his contribution towards this website.  I am sure it would serve as a link between the diocese and the outside world beyond it.  It shall also publish reports of the various developmental programs undertaken in the diocese.  Above all, it shall be an instrumental tool in faith formation and evangelization.

   
 

      I wish all the best to those who access this website and invoke God’s choicest blessings upon them. May we all become computer savvy for God’s Kingdom.
