The inauguration of the Marian Month was held on 16 July 2020 at Salesian Training Institute Nashik, with the theme ‘Integrating Mary in Our Life’.

The inaugural prayer service began with a solemn Eucharist in which the community members were given a blank Marian Month Calendar to record the good deeds they will do throughout this month. After the Holy Eucharist, the community proceeded prayerfully towards the statue of Our Lady singing hymns in her honour. A short introduction briefed everyone on the significance of the Marian Month.

Father Wyman Gonsalves Rector and Novice-Master declared the Marian Month open by cutting the ribbon and distributing Marian medals. Father Robert Pen released the updated version of the Quiz paper and handed it over to the novices, while Father Clarence Martis unveiled the Marian Month Calendar.
