I will be out of the Archdiocese from Sunday, September 15, 2019 till the end of the month for meetings in Rome. All the four auxiliary bishops will also be joining me in Rome early next week for the ad limina visit. I commend all of us to your prayers as we fulfil this important responsibility.
During my absence from the Archdiocese, Fr Neil dos Santos, Chancellor, has been given faculties for the administration of the Archdiocese.
