In his homily Father Vasava emphasised the 03 striking aspects of the young saint – simplicity of life, friendship with Jesus and Mary, and the need for heavenly things.
Rector DBYC, Father Ivan deSouza reflected on the young saint, connecting him to Blessed Carlo Acusti. He focused on how Savio and Acusti are models for all young people to be attracted, dedicated and committed to the Eucharist and its importance.
Prizes and souvenirs were given away in the evening. It was also homecoming for 03 clerics, to continue their studies in theology. Other 05 clerics are to begin their studies soon. These are from the Salesian Province of St. Joseph Vaz-Panjim [INP].
