Mangaluru, March 12 : Catholic Sabha Mangalore Pradesh® in collaboration with 12 Deaneries celebrated Women’s Day on 12th March 2023 at Bejai church hall. The Spiritual Director Rev. Dr. J.B. Saldanha inaugurated the Program by lighting the Lamp along with guests and the Women empowerment conveners from the Deaneries.

In his speech, Rev Dr Saldanha spoke about Gender inequality and how society appreciates only the men and the women’s hard work is not appreciated. Though 60% of members of Catholic Sabha are women, so far only Mrs. Flavy Dsouza has become the President. He requested more women to come forward and take up more responsible positions in the Catholic Sabha. He also suggested the women take care of their health, not only their families. He requested the women or the parents to treat their child boy or girl equally.

Speaker among the honoraries, Ms. Mishel Queeni Dcosta, IRS (who was honoured by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman), in her speech mentioned her inspirational background and encouraged mothers and the youth to motivate in various subjects of their interest.

The Chief Guest Mrs. Hilda Dsilva Retired Vice Principal, Milagres College Kallianpur, gave a very interesting talk about women and how women are more superior than they think. And we can do much more if we want. Women are the centre of attraction. A lady can do everything that gents can do. Whatever you give to a woman, she gives it back in multiples. We have to take a look at our families. And deal with our children with lots and lots of love. If a woman cannot be a role model to her children then we cannot have better families. She wished every woman not power over men, but power over themselves.

Chief guest Sister Cicilia Mendonca , Bethany Provincialate Provincial Superior, in her speech she said, one has to respect every woman. Woman is a sign of service and sacrifice. We as parents have to teach our children the values. She asked every woman to take leadership and responsibility and to do good both at home and society.
