It was on that day the late Msgr Michael Placid Colaco, commonly known as Msgr M.P. Colaco, sowed the mustard seed which in the designs of Providence was destined to grow into proportions which the founder could hardly have conceived.

Dear Friend,

Thanks for visiting this site. The Devotion to Saint Anthony in Mangalore gained a new direction when Msgr M.P. Colaco started Novena to the Saint on 12 June 1898 at Milagris followed by a solemn feast in his honour on the next day. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have come to the feet of Saint Anthony seeking his intercession in their various difficulties . All those who came to him have never returned empty handed. Saint Anthony is known as Saint of Miracles. The phrase of thirteen miracles goes along with his name. Such is the power of his intercession towards his devotees. Read More
