On the eve of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Mumbai Salesians' Vice-Provincial Father Ashley Miranda, installed Fatherr Banzelao Teixeira as the Rector of Divyadaan, the post-novitiate studentate of philosophy at Nashik.
Invoking the presence of the Holy Spirit, Father Miranda invited the confreres to pray for the to-be installed Rector. He read both, the appointment letter sent from Rome, as well as the article on the Rector from the Salesian Constitutions. Father Teixeira made the profession of faith in front of the assembly and signed the official documents. As a sign of humble acceptance and commitment to servant leadership, Father Teixeira vocalised thehymn - Tu sei la mia vita.
The community prayed and blessed Fatherr Teixeira as he officially became the Rector and guide of the confreres. The rite ended with a sign of peace and a hymn to our father and founder, Don Bosco.
