I am in receipt of the below attached mail and i wish to reply as under:
Perhaps the words in “I believe” will have to be changed from “the holy catholic church” to ” the holy catholic Churches” as per Fr.Aniceto Pereira.
Perhaps the guidelines given for flats by the archdiocese that all catholics of the the archdiocese shall be eligible , will have to be changed to only catholics of that parish as per his thinking.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto fells that all the money given to Our Lady of Salvation Church Dadar by catholics who were not parishoners should have not been taken.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto fells that all the money given to Our Lady of Salvation Church Dadar by catholics who were ex-parishoners of the said Church and who have now settled in different parts of Mumbai and Thane will now be returned.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto feels that the transparency which was spoken of in the Examiner of June 2010 is meant to mean only for the Catholics of that parish.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto feels that when parishoners from other parishes come to collect money for any worthy cause they should not be allowed.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto feels that he will get a life long posting in Our Lady of Salvation Church Dadar.
Perhaps Fr.Aniceto has forgotten that all catholics irrespective of where they stay are benefactors of Trust.
Perhaps he has forgotten that the trustees are mere custodians and the laity of Mumbai and Thane are the true owners and beneficiaries of the said trust and considering that the persons in power are transparent and have nothing to hide it would be in the interest of justice and fair play that the said information is given to me on an urgent basis unless something has to be hidden.
E-Mail sent on 08/07/2010 subsequently a reminder was sent on October 1st 2010
I have been recently informed that Ave Maria Dadar has also been sold.Considering past incidents in the archdiocese and how things have been handled I would like to know the following:
1.At what rate the said land has been sold or alienated or being redeveloped ?
2.Whether there is clause in the said agreement as to when the development ends?
3.Whether balcony FSI of 10% has been included in the total FSI which is sold given for redevelopment?
4. Whether the 20% increase in FSI for built up area has been included in the total areawhich is sold given for redevelopment?
5.What is the date of sanction given by the Charity Commissioner for the said deal?
I also wish to inform you that 2 different standards have been adopted one in the Marydell deal and another standard
Considering the fact that the trustees are custodians and the laity of Mumbai are the true owners and beneficiaries of the said trust and considering that the persons in power are transparent and have nothing to hide it would be in the interest of justice and fair play that the said information is given to me on an urgent basis.
If the said information is not given to me in 3 days I would be forced to presume that something is being hidden.

Dear Mr. Sodder,
This has reference to your e-mail of October 1, 2010.
Perhaps the Parish Priest, Fr. Aniceto Pereira, of Our Lady of Salvation Church, Dadar, has not replied to you because you do not belong to his parish.
With kind regards and best wishes,
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Cardinal Oswald Gracias
Archbishop of Bombay
Mr. A. M. Sodder
