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.

On this day three of our teachers, Mrs. Andrea Gonsalves (primary teacher), Mrs. Dorothy Dias (Retired Primary Supervisor) and Mrs. Ellen Gonsalves (retired teacher) made their promise as Salesian Cooperators to imbibe the spirit of Don Bosco and to reach out to youngsters in need.

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.

The Salesian Cooperators assembled at the dining hall and we had a family meal together. The three teachers were called together to cut the cake and the group sang Congratulations to them.
It was indeed a wonderful Salesian Family Day.
