Who we are
CatholicMatri is an initiative started by Celine D’Souza and Valerian D’Souza to bridge the gap which exists currently in the Catholic Matrimonial domain.
Celine D’Souza is a Professional with experience of 20+ years in India and has a formidable Social network.
Valerian D’Souza is a NRI with experience for 25+ years in UAE and has been active in various Social forums.
After receiving repeated feedback from various social circles on the dearth of organized Catholic matrimonial service at a global level, they motivated a team of budding Engineers to design CatholicMatri.com.
The Catholic population in India is around 18 million in number. The major communities include Anglo Indians, Goans, Mangaloreans, East Indians, Malayalees, Tamilians, Karwari, Sawantwadi and other Catholics from other States in India.
Traditionally, Word of mouth, those match-making Aunties / Uncles and Church Registers have been avenues for Catholic Matrimonials. Enquiries of potential Brides and Grooms at Weddings and Church services have also been used with varying degrees of success.
Given the limited reach of these avenues, the matches lack depth. It is more supply driven (who is available) than demand driven (preference of the match seeker).
Enter CatholicMatri.com – Our website bridges this gap by providing a global platform and innovative tools to enable prospective Brides and Grooms to find their rights match. A larger database like ours with Profiles from various Countries and Communities brings about better match making both in terms of better Quality of matches and lesser Time taken to find matches.
We have made efforts and continue to make sure that we do not encourage and do not permit any sort of dating and completely focus on providing top quality profiles to our members.
