At Katpadi members of MBC met Udupi Cycling Club members during their morning ride. Once in Udupi, MBC members were invited by the management of St. Francis Xavier’s church to visit their newly built church. The church was recently built adopting environment-friendly methods like rainwater harvesting, efficient usage of electricity. The beautiful Jesus statue on the dome of the church is sculpted by one of our club member, Ashwath Rasquinha which came as a surprise to all of us and a feeling of pride.
