Mangalorean Catholic and Goan Catholic Castes
The Culture of Mangalorean Catholics is a blend of Goan and Mangalorean cultures. After migration to Mangalore, they adopted the local Mangalorean culture, but retained many of their Goan customs and traditions. Their traditional houses, observed only in Mangalore, have spacious porticos, red cement or terra cotta floors and fruit trees around the house. Roman Catholic traditions include the Sakrament (Seven Sacraments) and include Povitr-Snan (Baptism), Thiravnni (Confirmation), Krist-Prasad (Eucharist), Prachit (Penance), Piddestanchi Makhnni (Anointing of the Sick), Iazokanchi Sonskornni (Holy Orders) and Logn (Matrimony). Mangalorean Catholics have retained many Indian customs and traditions and reveal their existence especially during the celebration of a marriage. Their culture is more traditional and Indian. Though the Portuguese traded quite frequently in Mangalore, and most of the priests arriving in the region were Portuguese, there did not develop a community identified with Portugal and Portuguese culture.

Mangalorean Catholic and Goan Catholic Crucession
Ros (anointing) ceremony, conducted one or two days before a wedding, celebrates the last day of virginity of the bride and bridegroom and involves the parents' blessing of the bride and groom, who are anointed with ros, a mixture of coconut milk and coconut oil, while a cross is inscribed on the bride's forehead. Later, it is followed by the Resper (Nuptial Blessing in Church) and finally the Vordik (wedding) and Voran (wedding party). Other traditions include Soirik or Sairikecho Malo (betrothal), Voulik (wedding invitation) and exchange of Paan Pod or Bido (betel leaves) during marriage ceremonies, which was called badalchen (changing hands). Indian traditions include adorning the bride with the Sado (wedding sari) and Pirduk (wedding necklace), the wearing of which indicates her Ayaponn (destiny), the Onpnni or Opsun divnchen((giving away the bride formally by the father or the guardian of the bride)).


Mangalorean Catholic and Goan Catholic Costumes
Mangalorean Catholic men used to wear long loose frilled white or black coats (similar to the Maratha loose coats) with buttons. The turbans were usually flattened like the Coorgi turbans (Urmal). The Urmal is a long white piece of cloth with a golden hem and is tied around the head like a turban. In modern times, this mode has changed. Only a few old people can be seen wearing this traditional dress on church going occasions. Before marriage, women used to wear white skirts over which sarees and blouses were worn. The Mangalorean Catholic bride's sari is known as an Sado.It is usually a red coloured Banarasi sari, which are made of finely woven silk and are decorated with elaborate engravings. The bride is also presented with a sari by her own people which is called Dharma sado, which was worn on other festive occasions. Some brides also wear a white sari during the nuptial blessing in church. Ornaments worn by the bride in ancient times included kanti, chakrasar, kap, karap, mugud, kanto, dantoni. Except datoni none of these ornaments are in use in the modern generation.
