MOIRA PARISH

The present Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao was baptised in the 15th century church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception in Moira. Even though he hails from Aldona; his mother was a Moidekarn.
There is an image in the cemetery chapel, of Christ crucified. It is unlike the usual images, since it depicts the feet of Christ nailed apart from each other, not together.
The belfry holds three bells, perhaps the only one in Goa to do so. The main bell of Moira originally belonged to the former Jesuit college in Old Goa and was cast in Portugal in 1739. Almost 200 years after it was cast, the bell developed a crack and was shipped back in 1952 to Braga to be recast in the same foundry. Iit was then shipped back to the delight of the Moidekars.
