The Goa Church will lobby with the Sri Lankan Catholic Church authorities to organise a meeting for 1,000 Goans with Pope Francis, who will visit Sri Lanka in January next year for the canonisation of Blessed Father Joseph Vaz.

Joseph Vaz, the country’s first saint, was incidentally of the Goan origin.

After the sainthood is conferred on Vaz, special prayer services would be held in Goa, especially in the parish church of Sancoale where Vaz grew up in the 17th century.
