BIS #6685 Celebrating Dominic Savio at DB Borivli
By Mrs Neelam Rodrigues for BISMumbai
On 6 July 2022, Don Bosco School and Junior college, Borivli, saw a heightened enthusiasm as the students celebrated the feast of St Dominic Savio.
The day began with a solemn mass for the catholic students celebrated by Fr Solomon Rapol, the Rector. Fr Flovi D'souza,the Principal, and Fr Aloysius Furtado were concelebrants. Fr Rapol, in his homily, urged the students to follow the footsteps of St Dominic Savio: attend mass, go for confessions regularly and above all offer themselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary so that she may work miracles in their lives. The students of other faiths had a prayer service being conducted in their own classes.
After the moments of prayers, the students participated in various activities. While the smaller kids had games and movies organized for them in their own classes, the students from Classes 7 to 10 had a wonderful time playing football, basketball, hockey and cricket.
The primary section kids had an amazing time honoring and celebrating the life of St Dominic Savio with various activities: coloring competition, wall-hanging competition and a Quiz on the life of the saint. They watched a movie on the saint. Later, they joined in playing telegames.
All in all, it was a very happy day for the kids as well as the members of the Don Bosco family, here at Borivli. May St Dominic Savio continue to inspire the lives of all who step on the portals of this institution.
