Our Tribute to John D'Silva

Mr. John D’Silva was born on 20 January, 1954. He was a great artist, a musician who spend most of his time in St. John the Baptist Church, Vijayanagar serving the faithful by helping them and the Parish Priest as a faithful sacristan. 

During his part time he also drew all the paintings of the Way of the Cross which are now placed in the Church. It is his magnificent work for which and for all his self-less service the parish is ever grateful. 

He was united with the Lord during a solemn Sunday Mass, of August 15, 2005 due to a massive heart attack.
