Hassan:The tiny village of Mathihalli, in Hassan District, Karnataka, rose on 16th April, 2013 to the strains of music and there was an atmosphere of jubilation. Deacon Richard Menezes, who grew up and nurtured his vocation in this Christian community, was ordained to the Priesthood by Most Rev. Thomasappa Anthonyswamy, the Bishop of Chickmagalur during a solemn Eucharist, concelebrated by over 40 priests.
The mission of Belur, to which the sub-station of Mathihalli belongs, was entrusted to the Discalced Carmelites of the Karnataka-Goa Province in 1982. The present Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Cyril Menezes, OCD, who has served the parish for 14 years was brimming with joy, seeing a son of the soil commit himself to serving the Lord through Sacred Orders. He is the first Carmelite vocation – a veritable fruit of the presence of the Carmelites in Belur for the past 31 years.

Deacon Richard Menezes is the son of Mr and Mrs. Sevrine and John Menezes. He has one brother. Rev. Fr. Archibald Gonsalves, OCD, the Provincial Superior of the Karnataka-Goa Province of Discalced Carmelites raised a fitting toast to the new Priest who is gifted with numerous gifts of heart and mind. The benefactors, who contributed to the formation of Deacon Richard spiritually and materially, were honoured on the occasion.

Rev. Fr. Richard Menezes, expressed his sentiments of thanks poetically, remembering all those who had helped him reach this important day in his life.
