BIS #6762 DB207 Celebrations at DBYM Borivli

By Ms Drushti Bhosle for BISMumbai

On 16 August 2022, the youth came together to commemorate the 207th anniversary of the birth of St John Bosco, at Don Bosco Church, Borivli. A total of 32 youngsters present for the event.

The celebration began with the Holy Eucharist at which the youth came together and prayed as one family. A short programme organized for the youth followed thereafter. Fr Solomon Rapol, the Rector and Parish Priest, welcomed the youth and gave an insightful talk on the qualities of Don Bosco and urged the young people to follow the same in their lives. Fr Renold Lemos, the Youth Director, motivated the youth to consider Don Bosco Youth Movement (DBYM) as a platform to grow, learn, build and develop their skills. He also invited them to make good use of the space provided to them in the campus for recreation.

The celebration continued with some common party games, songs, and dance. The youth then had a symbolic cake cutting with everyone singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to dearest Don Bosco. This was followed by a short talk by the president of the DBYM, Mr Durran D'Mello, who briefed the group about the forthcoming events and encouraged them to be proactive and take full participation in the activities organized for them.

The birthday celebration ended with a sumptuous dinner and sloganeering in the name of Don Bosco. The evening was truly a memorable one as the youth enjoyed themselves and once again went home with a heart full of memories.
