BIS #6398 Dominic Savio Andheri celebrates 'Savio' & 'Mary'

by Cleric Shivraj Bhuriya with Father Wilfred D'Souza for BISMumbai

Savio Week was organized online from 27 June to 06 July. There were mainly three activities in the course of the week. These were online competitions on the life of St. Dominic Savio organized only for the boarders. Three were selected in each of the competitions. Participation of the boys was very good as many came up with their own creativity whether it was drawing, poems, or videos on the life of St. Dominic Savio; and their love for him was seen in the way they participated in the competitions. Savio week ended with a solemn Mass celebrated online for the entire school.

Marian Month began on 15 July, with a short online inauguration ceremony where Rector-Father Brian Moras declared the Marian Month open followed by short message.

Thus far 02 activities, ‘Sing to Mary’ and ‘Marian Grotto’ competitions have been successfully completed. Other forthcoming activities to help boys grow in knowledge of and their faith in Mary will continue through the month. The Marian Month will end on 15 August, the Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady and Independence Day, with online games.
