by Cleric Ethan Fortes for BISMumbai

The feast of St. Dominic Savio was celebrated at Bosco Boys Home, Borivali. beginning with a solemn Eucharistic celebration by Father Dominic Lisboa who spoke about the sanctity of this saint and challenged the boys to emulate the virtues and qualities of the saint.

Later in the day, a box cricket tourney was held in which the 04 teams of the institute vied with each other to clinch the coveted trophy. At dusk, a short prayer service with focus on the life and undertakings of this great saint. A ‘Cosplay’ competition was then held in which the boys had an opportunity to get into the skin of characters of great renown: freedom fighters, saints and literature laureates. Prince who bagged the first place for playing the role of Bhagat Singh remarked, “A competition like this has given me a confidence boost. I could memorise my dialogue well and worked my way through my costume with a little jugaad." The day ended with a few impromptu quiz rounds on the life of Dominic Savio, with the invocation : ‘O St. Dominic Savio, Pray For us!’, especially for safety and protection in these pandemic times.
