Fr. Cleophas

Lent – we are invited to venture into the ‘desert’ and there experience the call of Jesus to live by the three dimensions of ‘almsgiving, prayer and fasting’. Fr Cleophas Fernandes encourages us to sacrifice ourselves in almsgiving and justice to the needy; prayer, to find a time of quiet meditation based on the Word of God; and fasting a denial of self, as a sign of true repentance.

About Us

Snehalaya Family Service Centre is a not-for-profit NGO that helps families in Mumbai , India . In a mega-city like Mumbai, the stress and strain of living, with problems such as poverty, lack of proper housing, displacement, unemployment and underemployment, socio-cultural differences, marital discord, etc., proves too overwhelming for many individuals and families. Under this stress many individual feel lost, tried beyond their endurance, frustrated and defeated. People can seek help when capacities for responding to the demands of life are strained, when desired growth seems unattainable, when important decisions elude resolution and natural support systems are unavailable or insufficient.
