Mangaluru: Catholic Sabha Mangalore Pradesh in collaboration with 12 Deaneries celebrated Women’s day on March 12 at the Bejai Church Hall. The Spiritual Director Rev. Dr J.B. Saldanha inaugurated the program by lighting the Lamp along with guests and the Sthree Hitha Sanchalakis from the Deaneries.

In his speech, he spoke about gender equality and how society appreciates only men and women’s hard work is not appreciated. Though 60 per cent of members of the Catholic Sabha are women. So far only 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 that women take care of their health, not only their families. He requested the women or the parents to treat their children, boys or girls, equally.

Speaker among the felicitators– 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 Hilda Dsilva, Retired Vice Principal, Milagres College, Kallianpur, gave a very interesting talk about women, about how women are superior to what they think. And we can do much more if we want. Women are the centre of attraction. A lady can do everything that a gent 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 a lot and a lot 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. The woman is a sign of service and sacrifice. We as parents have to teach our children the values. Ask every woman to take leadership and responsibility and to do good both at home and in society.
