Rev. Israel Gonsalves, O.C.D.
Father Israel joins STM as parochial vicar.
Father Israel is our newest parochial vicar. He has traveled across vast oceans and continents to be with us. He is originally from Goa, India.
Father Israel enjoys praying with small Christian communities, working on social projects, visiting the sick in nursing homes and helping orphans.
“I really enjoy meeting new people of all walks of life, poor and rich alike. I like connecting people. Even after I leave, the people I connect can remain friends. We are all one family in Jesus Christ, we just don’t know each other yet.”
