Bishops Message



Dear Fathers, Brothers, Sisters and Friends,

I deeply regret to give you the tragic news of the sad and unexpected demise of Rev. Fr. Alwyn Serrao, 48 yrs, of our diocese in the government hospital, Honnali. He was on sick leave for some time now. According to the hospital records he apparently succumbed to Covid -19

Because of the lock down restrictions on account of the pandemic there will not be a funeral Mass. He will be buried in the Priests’ Cemetery, Cathedral, Shimoga, at 9.30 am on Friday 11 June 2021

Again, because of the pandemic protocol, only 5 persons are permitted inside the cemetery during the burial. As customary in the diocese, all the priests of the diocese will kindly offer one mass for the repose of the soul of our brother priest. R.I.P

+ Francis Serrao SJ
Bishop of Shimoga
