The Salesian Family had an hour with Don Bosco on Sunday, 14th August 2011 in the Shrine of Don Bosco's Madonna, Matunga, Mumbai from 3.00 pm to 4.00. pm. Fr. Wilfred D'Souza the Delegate for the Salesian Family was present and began with a prayer service after which there was time for the various groups of the Salesian Family to express 'What Don Bosco meant to each one.' A number of individuals from the Salesian Family and from our Andheri Unit of Cooperators and Past Pupils came forward to express their love, gratitude and commitment to Don Bosco. Many of them had very touching stories to narrate.
They were all thrilled to have this special time with Don Bosco and in his midst. Don Bosco surely reached out to each and every one who was present t bless and extend his loving care to one and all present as he did when he was alive and surrounded by his boys.

It was truly a moment of reunion with our Father and Teacher of the young, a promise that Don Bosco kept, to come and be with us and in our midst.
This has truly been a privilege for us members of the Salesian Family and a memorable event in our lives and in the history of the Salesian Family here in Mumbai. Some members of our unit of the Salesian Family giving their testimony about how Don Bosco touched the lives of them and their families.
After the short but sweet program in the church we had mass at 4.30 pm for the Salesian Family.
Thank you Don Bosco! Long Live Don Bosco!
