Feb 25 : “My good friend, God be with you. I am going to heaven. A hearty hug to Fr. Sebastian Gonsalves on my behalf.” - Saint Gonsalo Garcia to a friend on the day of his martyrdom.

The celebration of St. Gonsalo Garcia's feast day on February 7, 2024, organized by the ICYM Central Council Mangalore, Diocese, was a significant event that brought together members of the ICYM Mangalore Diocese to honor their patron saint.
