“It is enough that you are to be young for me to love you very much”  -Don Bosco.

On 10th February 2019, we celebrated the Family day and Parents meeting at Bosco Illu, Sabbavaram. Don Bosco, friend of Youth was celebrated grandly in the presence of students of our institutions, parents, friends, well-wishers and staff. At 10 am we had the holy Eucharistic celebration at our prayer room along with many fathers and sisters from different communities. Fr. Peter Simhadri, Arch Bishop’s Secretary was the main celebrant of the day. In his message he said that every one of us are called to be faithful to the call of Jesus. As St. Peter said “at your word Lord we cast our net” must be our attitude. He also appreciated all the services rendered by the Salesians for the growth of children and youth. Fr. Thankachan SDB narrated the life of St. Don Bosco and wished every one, the greetings of the day.
