On Wednesday 9 January 2013 Fr. Michael Fernandes the Provincial of the Salesians of the Mumbai province came on his official visit of the complex. The Provincial Visitation comes once a year when the Provincial looks into the happenings of the institute and checks its records, meet the staff of the various departments and shares some of his thoughts.
We began the visit with common prayers of the community at 6.10 am followed by the Eucharistic service and then the school assembly at 08.00 am. The Provincial was welcomed by the Rector with a floral tribute and an address read out briefly giving an idea of all that happened in the last year.
Fr. Provincial congratulated the students for their results in the past couple of year and in a special thanked the teachers who have been instrumental in the good results and the dedication to their duty.
The entire day went with meeting each salesian of the community and then the various groups. The staff were met at 01.30pm; Prafulta team met the Provincial at 02.30 pm; Don Bosco Balprafulta met the Provincial at 03.15 pm; The Salesian Cooperators met at 06.00 pm; The Past Pupils at 07.00pm & the Evening study children and staff at 07.30 pm.
He then gave a good night to the boys and encouraged them to make sure that they finish their studies and have a certificate as that is very important to go ahead in life.
He met the community in the night and finished with a conference to the Salesians and his impressions. He was happy to be with us and spend the entire day with all.
We thank Fr. Michael, the Provincial for his visit and assure him our prayers for his work and ministry.
