Warm greetings of love, peace and joy to you all from Paladka Parish (Moodbidri-Mangalore Diocese). It is indeed a matter of great pride to speak to you through this website.

Our church is dedicated to St. Ignatius Loyola, a great Jesuit Saint.

Ignatius was a true mystic. He centered his spiritual life on the essential foundations of Christianity- the Trinity, Christ, the Eucharist. His spirituality is expressed in the Jesuit motto, ad majorem Dei gloriam- “For the greater glory of God”.

Our beloved Patron- St. Ignatius has protected us all these years. May St. Ignatius unite all our Parishioners and the faithful as of one mind and one heart. May he guide us to promote peace, joy and harmony among the people of other faiths.

My special thanks to my Parishioner Alwyn and Alan D’Souza for having designed and developed this website in a unique style. Our parishioners too are grateful to them for their selfless and dedicated service. May St. Ignatius bless them and all our parishioners and all the well-wishers abundantly.

May the God grant us peace, joy and happiness with good health. May he Bless us all.
