UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.
Fr. Michael Kelly SJ
Bishop Gerald Isaac Lobo of Udupi created history by appointing a Catholic nun as the treasurer of the diocese.
Sr. Lydia Mendonca, who is appointed to the post, belongs to the Congregation of Sisters of Bethany.
This is the first instance in the Karnataka Church where a woman religious has been appointed for the job.
Like the other services in the Church, the service of financial administrator too was held by priests of the diocese till now.
To help the diocesan administration and to advise the diocesan bishop on various matters, a College of Consultors was also constituted.
The oath-taking ceremony was held in the Bishop’s chapel today.
