BIS #6190 DBPH Oratory gym facility inaugurated

by BISMumbai Corrrespondent

It was the journey of a dream come true for Don Bosco Oratory at Provincial House Matunga, with the setting up of its new Savio Gym and indoor games hall. It all began with a dream and the eagerness of the youth themselves. Over a period of ten days, the young volunteers came everyday. They began to work on a project they would own. It was hard work but fun too.

Under the guidance of Father Glenford Lowe and Brother Bryce Fernandes, they began on something they had never done before - from dismanteling, to scrubbing off the rust, to painting and rearranging the shelves from the previous greenhouse, to aligning the wall papers and setting up the artificial turf and garden space around. They finally had the joy of seeing it blessed and inaugurated by Father Lowe on the festal commemoration of St. Teresa of Avila.

Brother Fernandes welcomed MumbaiSalesians' Provincial Father Savio Silveira, to address the oratory members.Also present were ViceProvincial Father Ashley Miranda and Economer Father Manuel Murzello, together with tge other Salesians at DBPH.

Senior Coach and oratory member, Rishabh Vishwakarma raised a vote of thanks and appreciated the role of the Salesians in 'nurturing their lives significantly' at the DBPH oratory. Also appreciated were the other oratory coaches - Rishab, Karan Jaiswar, Rahul Mahadev, Amish Saroj and the many volunteers who came from Dharavi and Sion Koliwada - to set up the new Savio Gym facility.
