31 January never goes uncelebrated in DBL, the feast of our Father and Founder St. John Bosco. As in other years, this year too we celebrated Don Bosco’s Feast with pomp, piety and lot of gusto. The celebrations began on 30 January itself with special prayers organized during morning assemblies. On 31 January 2017, the salesians, staff and students gathered for the Holy Mass at 8.30 a.m. The Mass was celebrated by Fr. Nirmol Gomes SDB, Provincial, Kolkata Province. In his homily, Fr. Nirmol Gomes highlighted the principles with which Don Bosco lived.
After the Mass, everyone gathered behind the main building to witness the Foundation Laying Ceremony of the upcoming wing – ‘Sheehy Wing’. The foundation stone was blessed and laid by Fr. Provincial. This was followed by a sumptuous feast day breakfast for all. On this day, we pray to St. John Bosco to continue to watch over the great DBL family and shower us with his blessings always. A very Happy Feast to one and all.
