Bishop Gerald Lobo honoured the trustees of Snehalaya. In his message, Bishop said, “Joseph Crasta is only an instrument of God. He is led by the divine spirit. Almighty knows the burdens and problems of his creatures. He decides how to help them. Here he has chosen Joseph to take care of his creatures. Snehalaya is rendering service without any bias of caste and religion. We all know the charity works of this institution. We are proud to say that such an institution is situated in our surroundings. I congratulate Joseph and his team for completion of ten years of service and wish them a bright future”. Later, Bishop honored Bro Joseph Crasta.
