The feast of St Dominic Savio was celebrated on 5 July 2022, at Don Bosco, Yerwada. A procession was held to commemorate this little giant of sanctity.

The statue of St Dominic Savio was garlanded by Fr Ajit Munis, principal of Don Bosco High School and Junior College. This was followed by the lighting of the lamp by Fr Michael Fernandes, Mrs Rina Chandekar and Mrs Manjusha Thorat. The children sang a melodious song to praise and glorify Saint Dominic Savio. The dignitaries were felicitated with the craft and artistic works prepared by the children. Fr Munis gave a speech highlighting the key aspects in the life of St Dominic Savio.

On 6 July, a solemn Mass was celebrated with the Catholic teachers and students to honour St Dominic Savio. The investiture ceremony was held in the School and Junior College after the Eucharistic celebration. The house captains, house vice captains, monitors, sports and hygiene leaders were invested by the management. The students took the oath before the entire school and college and promised to assist in the functioning of the school and college. Fr Munis thanked one all for all the efforts put in making the two day celebration of St Dominic Savio a success.
