From Hindustan Times:
By late next year, the East Indian community will inaugurate a chapel at Manori dedicated to the first Indian Catholic saint Gonsalo Garcia.
Garcia was born in Vasai to a Portuguese soldier and a local woman. There is a church and college dedicated in his name at Vasai. However, the local East Indian community has, for the past few years, been planning to set up a chapel in Mumbai. “He is our native saint, but we do not have a chapel in his memory in Mumbai. Around four years ago, our community decided that he would be venerated as our patron saint. However, the land and funding was an issue” said Gleason Barrretto, founder trustee, Mobai Gaothan Panchayat (MGP).
