BIS #6536 Vasai Don Bosco past-pupils' Marian Nite at JyotiMata Church
by Father Richard Burkhao for BISMumbai
A devotional and a delightful Marian Nite was organised at Jyoti Mata Church on 04 December 2021, for the Don Bosco Past Pupils-Vasai Unit. The purpose of the event was to increase the devotion to Mother Mary and also to create an opportunity for the past-pupils from various Don Bosco institutions, to come together and work towards spreading the mission of Don Bosco far and wide.
The programme began with the garlanding of the statue of our Blessed Mother by Priest Incharge-Father William Falcao. The entire assembly then prayed the Rosary. Later, various interesting and delightful games and puzzles based on Our Lady were conducted by Father Richard Burkhao. Towards the end, MumbaiSalesians' Vocation Councillor Father Blany Pinto and Vocation Animator Father Velasli Bandya took a short session in which they exhorted the past-pupils to encourage boys from their respective areas, to join Don Bosco Lonavla, not just to join the Salesians, but also to become good Christian leaders in their parishes and in society.
A prize distribution and the solemn tea-snacks concluded the programme. Most of the past-pupils who attended were very delightful and appreciative for this wonderful and devotional programme.
