Understanding the Jesuits in Goa- By Fredrick Noronha

  They have been called the "schoolmasters of
          Europe".  For decades, if not centuries, this
          religious Order has played a key role in exchanging
          information, about science and plants, between
          India and Europe.  At times, they were
          conservatives, and at other times, they've been
          almost radical.  The Jesuits -- or Society of Jesus
          -- has also played a crucial, though sometimes
          challenged and critiqued, role in Goa as well.

Eucharist and Get-together for the families of the Jesuits


Xavier Centre for Historical Research and Goa Heritage Action Group jointly hosted Beyond the Horizon, an exhibition of recent works by Clarice Vaz.


Xavier Centre for Historical Research and Goa Heritage Action Group  jointly hosted Beyond the Horizon, an exhibition of recent works  by Clarice Vaz. Clarice’s works have found a special place in the  hearts of the Goans over the past years in which she has exhibited. This  exhibition was held at the Xavier Centre for Historical Research,  Porvorim, Goa from January 23 to January 26, 2020.

In the words of Curator Lina Vincent, “In her new series of paintings,  Clarice Vaz continues her investigation of life’s deepest philosophies  and the mysteries of existence. Her journey as an artist has been as  much connected to intuitive explorations as the mastering of skills. A  painter, activist, writer and multidisciplinary practitioner, she imbues  her work with a sense of innate strength and visual harmony – and an  experiential silence that rises above the chaos of mundane life. She  responds to the external environment she finds herself in, as well as to  internal experiences, and finds different ways to translate these into  visual manifestations. Her work contains layers, figuratively and  conceptually, and she invites viewers to probe deeper and extract their  own answers.

Jesuit Schools in Goa First in the state to be Powered by Solar Energy

 With the ever growing need for electricity a big challenge to our times, Two of our Jesuit schools in Goa have taken the Go green initiative a step further quite literally: towards the skies! They are now the first in the state to be fully powered by solar energy with the installation and commissioning of the 15kw plant at Loyola High School, Margao and the 20kw plant at St. Britto High school, Mapusa. Besides this the Jesuit Residence at St. Britto’s is also powered by a 10kw power plant. Thus, generating about 35kw/hr of electricity in the Britto’s premises.

Mass Awareness Programme at Torangatti


  Fr Tom Chenakala came up with the idea of reviving the old and dissolved Self Help Groups in and around the neighbourhood of Torangatti by motivating the people and empowering them to work towards change. To achieve this purpose, the Jana Jagaran team along with Fr Augustine SJ organised a Mass Awareness Programme at Sarvajagatika Virakta Math, Toranagatti on 12th January 2019. Mr. Anna Shivaji Kaganikar, the recipient of the Dr Devaraj Urs award was the Honorary Guest Speaker. The programme covered the topics on Panchayati Raj, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), NRLM (Nation Rural Livelihood Mission), Health and Sanitation and the need to form SHGs and build a strong federation within each village. There was a good response from the villagers. Villagers and SHG members of the existing and old SHGs came from Yargatti, Madalur, Badakalur, Chunchunur, Katol, Sopadla and Toranagatti to participate in the Mass Awareness Program. This Mass Awareness Program is the beginning of a fresh thrust towards Social, Political and Economic Development of these areas.
