BIS #6166 Divyadaan Nashik releases 'DD Express' Issue 01 of 2020-21
by Cleric Melton Suares for BISMumbai
On 24 September, feast of St. Matthew Apostle and Evangelist, Divyadaan Nashik released the 1st issue of its tri-monthly magazine ‘DD Express’ for the academic year 2020-2021, with the theme - ‘Mary in our daily lives’.
Even as the world around is yet recovering from the COVID-19 lockdown and entering into phasal unlock, nothing could deter the Salesians at Divyadaan from painstakingly taking upon themselves the task of writing down in black and white their devotion to the Blessed Mother, with eloquence and finesse.
The launch was held after 'compline' in the main chapel. Cleric Ethan Fortes coordinator DD Media group spoke about the efforts involved in getting this issue ready for print. He further thanked the varied writers for their contribution. Rector, Father Banzelao Teixeira then released the magazine and handed a copy each to the capos of each group. Father Teixeira said, "I hope this will encourage more writers to take up the pen, a skill which the entire community needs to develop."
Special appreciation and thanks was said to Registrar and Editor Father Leon Rodrigues, Cleric Alan D’Silva for the cover design, Cleric Sanket Chauhan for the layout, and to the other contributors.
