Following the novena mass of St Ana, Dr Paul Varela Gomes (Architectural Historian and the Director of Fundacao Oriente Goa and Portugal) released the book ‘A Living Architectural Splendour’, a study on the architectural history of the church of St Ana, Talaulim Santana authored by Rosario F Rodrigues. A Sunday crowd packed the church and the Parish Priest Father Lourdinho R Pereira welcomed the crowd with warm words. Dr Gomes briefly explained about the architecture of St Ana church. “You all are sitting in one of the best parish churches in the world mainly because of its architectural style. It’s niche walls; galleries and clerestory are exceptional and makes it a rarity among the churches of the world. It is designed by Father Francisco do Rego, a Goan architect and constructed by Goans too”. Speaking on the book Father Lourdinho said, “This book will force the reader to go to the site, it breaks down the inscrutability that surrounds the churches architecture and enables one to view the church from a totally different angle and not just look, but understand”. He also explained about the highly appreciated comments on the book by Mr N Taher (Deputy Superintendent of the ASI), Father Délio Mendonça (Director of Xavier Centre of Historical Research), Professor Prajal Sakhardande (Lecturer at the Department of History, Dhempe College), Architect Dean D’Cruz, Architect Poonam Verma Mascarenhas (Conservation Architect), Father Lourdinho R Pereira (Parish Priest), Mr Percival Noronha (Founder and Secretary, Indian Heritage Society), Mr Rozario Estibeiro (Accredited Photojournalist), Architect Ketak S P Nachinolkar (Conservation Architect), Architect Tulio de Sousa (Architect) and Father J Loiola Pereira (Archbishop’s Secretary).
The author alone performed the entire work behind the book -photography, editing, cover design, page layout, graphics, printing and publishing, etc. His earlier books include ‘The Happenings of Batim, ‘World’s Grand Procession of Saints in India, ‘Models of Holiness From India And Missionaries On The Way To Sainthood and ‘Holy Face And The Procession Of Saints’.
The book contains over 450 descriptive colour photographs of the entire church as it stands today. The book also provide vivid details; the history of the parish, a deep study of the celebration of the feast of its patron St Anna and of her relic, a brief theology of Catholic beliefs, a glossary of terms and the history of the churches architecture.
This book is a photographic document of the present state of the aesthetic masterpiece said the author. The book is available only with the Santana church committee. The church is currently undergoing massive restoration and conservation executed by the INTACH, New Delhi.
Dr. Maurilio Furtado, the well known Doctor from the village Varca-Salcete, passed away peacefully on the 2nd August 2009, after a brief illness. He was 88 years. Dr. Maurilio’s contribution towards Goa has been immense. During the Portuguese era he was a Medical Officer C.N.N. Lisbon Compania Nacianal de Navigacao.
After 1961, he was the 1st Sarpanch of Orlim-Varca Village Panchayat. He was also the 1st MLA of Benaulim Constituency. He played a key role in saving Goa from the merger into Maharashtra. He was a strong United Goan Party Stalwart.
Dr. Maurilio was a multi facted personality of many talents. He served the people of Goa as an unique Doctor for nearly six and half decades with his speciality as ‘Ferdam Dotor’ at his legendry ‘SOPO’.
He was an ardent animal and nature lover. He leaves behind his children & grandchildren.

The parents as well as the coach praised Shrinivas’ grand gesture in sponsoring the costs of Akhilesh’s participation at International Karate Championships in Tokyo from August 7 - 11.
Speaking on the occasion, Dempo said: “Master Akhilesh is a symbol of what youth in Goa was capable of in sport. The Dempo Sports Policy, was designed and adopted precisely to give a fillip to youthful Goan sporting talent.”
Reminding those present that three Goan youths, each a globally benchmarked player in their respective disciplines of lawn tennis (Natasha Palha), swimming (Talasha Prabhu) and chess (Ivana Maria Furtado), had been named Dempo Goodwill Brand Ambassadors, Dempo added: “The generations-old tradition of strong Dempo support to communities across Goa had been carried forward, and would be strengthened in the months to come, especially to young sporting achievers in the State.”
The ceremony also saw young Natasha, lawn tennis sensation and Ivana, national chess wizard, briefing Shrinivas along with their parents on the recent run of global and national successes notched by the two youngsters, displaying on the occasion the trophies they had won so deservingly.
