It was a long weekend for most of the boarders as they went home on Wednesday the 15th February after class and came back on Monday, 20th February to celebrate Bro. Roshan Gonsalves’ birthday in the evening.

At 7.00 pm we had the Eucharistic celebration to pray for Bro. Roshan and his intentions. After the Eucharistic celebration we had a short but sweet entertainment in the recreation hall. The two comperes did an excellent job. The DS Boys in Harmony sang a couple of songs and one of them most appropriate for the occasion, ‘Guardian Angel’ singing it especially for Bro. Roshan as he has been a guardian angel to the boys.

The junior group put up a dance and a skit. A brief but meaningful and apt address was read out for Bro. Roshan expressing in it what the boarders thought of him and what he meant to them in the boarding.

Fr. Godfrey the Rector in his speech thanked Bro. Roshan for his availability for the boys and his patience with them in trying to get them to grow up to be men of character.

Bro. Roshan in his speech first thanked the Almighty for the marvels worked in his own life and then thanked his parents and family. He said that he continued to find meaning in life in the Salesian congregation and was delighted to be in a loving community at Dominic Savio’s.

At the end of the program, some of the boys who had prepared some home-made cards presented the same to him and we all went for dinner.

Many Happy Returns of the Day Bro. Roshan! God bless You!
