|About the Goan Community of Oman|
The Goan Community of Oman (GCO) is an informal organization under the auspices of the Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Ruwi. It’s membership is open to all Goans in Oman who belong to the Catholic Church parishes at Ruwi, Ghala, Sohar and Salalah. In keeping with the secular nature of Catholic organizations world over, the GCO welcomes non-Catholic Goans too to participate in its activities.
To promote the objectives of the GCO, an ad-hoc Committee was initially established in January 2008. This Committee set up the draft Constitution, which was formally adopted at the first General Body Meeting held on 5th December 2008 and approved by Fr. Raul Ramos, Parish Priest of Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Ruwi. The Spiritual Director of the GCO is Fr. Albert D'Silva, Asst. Parish Priest. At this first GBM, the GCO members also elected the current Managing Committee, which will hold Office till 31st December 2009.
