BIS #6573 Vasai Past-Pupils unit celebrates Don Bosco

by Father Richard Burkhao for BISMumbai

The Don Bosco Past Pupils unit of Vasai gathered together at Jyoti Mata Church to celebrate the feast of its father and founder Don Bosco. Around 60 past pupils from different parts of Vasai who have passed out from various Don Bosco institutions joined the celebration.

The programme began with the celebration of the Eucharist at 5:15 pm. Father Neelam Lopez, SJ, (past pupil of Don Bosco Lonavla) was the main celebrant with Father Godfrey Remedios from Vasai Diocese, Father William Falcao, and Father Richard Burkhao, as concelebrants. The choir was organised by the past pupils themselves.

After the solemn Eucharist, snacks were enjoyed, followed by a short meeting. Father Falcao chaired the meeting. The agenda of the meeting was to discuss about the membership of the association and the progress in the formation of the unit.

Later, in order to get familiar with one another, each one gave a short introduction about themselves. Father Burkhao then taught an action song, followed by few party games. The celebration concluded with sumptuous dinner.
