Pilar Society[edit]

The headquarters of the Missionary Society of St. Francis Xavier is located at Pilar, hence the common name of Pilar Society given to the missionaries of Saint Francis Xavier. [SFX].[1]

There are pilgrims who visit Pilar every Thursday to venerate the mortal remains of venerable Father Agnelo, a priest of the above-said Society who had lived a virtuous life.

The Pre-Novitiate house is doing well in Pilar. They organised an art exhibition there entitled Waves Of Destruction... Waves of Compassion...
