Rev and dear Fathers,

Greetings from Fr. A. Maria Francis, Property-in-charge.

I humbly request the Fathers to take note of the following:

1. Make sure that you have proper documents for the land of the church, parish, school and the sub-stations.

2. If you do not have property documents in your parish, you can call me (cell: 9447668078) and find out whether we have documents for your parish at the Bishops house.

3. Once you have proper documents you need to apply for encumbrance certificate at the registrar office closer to your village.

4. As you have the proper documents and encumbrance certificate we can apply for patta, (a) to the collector at the time of grievance day or (b) to the Thasildar of your Taluk.

5. I request the Vicars Forane to inform the Vicariate Fathers of the above information at the time of the monthly recollection of September, 2017

Yours sincerely,
Fr. A. Maria Francis.
