Our vision and mission evolves with a note of living our faith in the presence of the non-Catholic and non-Christian world around us.  Entrusted with the mission of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and building the Kingdom of God in the Diocese of Shimoga we are face with the following realities in this land:

  • media manipulation and erosion of values;
  • social economic and gender disparities; and
  • exploitation of the weaker section of society.
