hold the Sunday mass for all Catholics in the city at St Francis Xavier church in Chinchwad The faithful will wear black bands and protest at Sunday mass at the church The issue has been brewing for past three months after priest Father S A Louis directed that Sunday mass be held at the newly-built St Francis Xavier church Chinchwad and not at St Urusla school premises in Nigdi where it was being held for decades This has apparently upset nearly 500 faithfuls who had approached different authorities people’s representatives Pune Bishop and even the Pope’s ambassador to India to get the order reversed The faithful contend that the Sunday mass which has been held for decades at St Ursula’s premises in Nigdi should be continued as travelling to Chinchwad was highly inconvenient for the old

the mass centre near our residence” William Naidu a senior activist from the community” said”The directives are kind of a fatwa which violates the spirit of Rome They should be withdrawn in the larger interest of the Christian community The Bishop should act firmly” Fernandes and Menezes said the newly-built church cannot accommodate 1500 faithful at one time due to lack of space “During Christmas and New Year celebrations we had a tough time attending the church There was also huge parking problem” they said Naidu said there were seven priests available in the Chinchwad parish and they can hold mass at different places Father Louis however said holding mass at one church helps unite the community rather than depicting divisions in our ranks “It is an effort to present a picture of unity among the community unity of love unity of service… When you gather at one place you share each other’s concerns which helps to create a healthy atmosphere of community feeling” Louis said Complaints of lack of space transport facility or parking are common everywhere and to all religious activities he said When contacted Pune Bishop Thomas Dabre said since they (protestors) had approached Pope’s ambassador to the country they should wait for a decision from the “big court” “People themselves have built the church by spending Rs 4 crore for one and all And the same people are now opposing it which is difficult to understand From Nigdi to Chinchwad it is only two-km distance and not much The Christian community should put up a united a front and send out a strong message to the world Let’s
