"Saxtticheo Igorzo" (Churches of Salcette, Vol II), the last part of a historical series on the churches of the Old Conquests in Goa, in Konkani language, written by a reputed historian and State Cultural award winner and prolific writer Fr Moreno de Souza, SJ, was released at the Holy Cross Parish Church, Cavelossim, by Rev Fr Socorro Mendes, Director of the Diocesan Family Service Centre and son of the soil, on September 23. Commenting on the work of Fr Moreno, who is already 83 in age, Fr Mendes said, "Fr Moreno will always remain alive in his writings and his story would pass from generation to generation." [GT]
