NAIGAON, JULY 22, 2009:
And they came on the morning of July 16, 2009: the old, the seniors, the devout, the very young in the arms, and the nuns to the ruins of small petite walls of the church that began but was never completed. A team of school children along with Fr. Bonnie Borges streamed in the company of occasional rain drops, and to add to the solemnity of the occasion. Fr. Michael Fernandes our Provincial blessed the site with showers of blessing spiced with few beautifully clipped words. He hoped that building the Lords house would and should be as soon as possible. It is a promise to be fulfilled and a task that should have been accomplished years ago. This endeavor requires a positive collaboration of all the parishioners .He hoped that the dream may be a reality soon.
THE BIRTHDAY OF FR. BONNIE BORGES

NAIGAON, JULY 22, 2009
: The silence, the somber quiet, the serenity of the night of July 15, and the sacred space was shattered as Salesian knights trooped in the rain threatened sky, uncertain of what they would meet, when they came to greet. It was the occasion of the birthday of Fr Bonnie Borges. A birthday, which will be remembered by him for a long time. Years have gone by and the sower of Salesianal seeds of youthful work is now reaping a fine harvest of a finely tuned institution. DON BOSCO, Naigaon even in the dark it seemed shinning and even in the silence it spoke volumes of praise, admiration and appreciation. This is why Salesians came from EAST (Pune), WEST (Mumbai), NORTH (Kuwait) and from SOUTH (Virar) in numbers never before. We celebrated a significant day, "A day when we looked in the eye of joy of a Salesian".
