SALESIAN FAMILY DAY
On Saturday, the 8th December 2012, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of our Lady, the Salesian Cooperators of the Andheri Unit had its Salesian Family Day with a solemn mass in honour of our Blessed Mother. Fr. Wilfred D’Souza the Provincial Delegate for the Salesian Family was the main celebrant at the Eucharistic celebration and Frs. Rector, Fr. Edwin and Fr. Barnabe were also present.
The boarders sang very well during the mass and made it very solemn. Fr. Wilfred in his homily explained the readings of the second Sunday of Advent and said that the season of Advent and the feast of our Blessed mother are very closely connected and God chose her to bring forth His Son into the world through a humble woman.
At the end of the mass we had a felicitation for the best boarder in the last term. His behaviour, obedience, studies and discipline were taken into account and the prize went to Master Leyton D’Silva. Fr. Barnabe gave the gift away to Leyton.
It was indeed a wonderful Salesian Family Day.
