THE YOUNG GENERATION OF SALESIAN CO-OPERATORS IN DON BOSCO BORIVLI
By: Durran D'mello
BORIVLI-MUMBAI, JUNE 20, 2013: On June 10, 2013, four youngsters Ronald Lobo, Joshua D'souza, Elton Daniel and Durran D'mello along with Rev. Fr. William Falcao and Mrs Claudina Pinto, from St. John Bosco Parish, Borivli headed towards Don Bosco, Matunga.
Rev. Fr. Wilfred D'souza welcomed us and he directed us to the chapel where we prayed. He asked us to relate how each one of us was connected to our patron saint Don Bosco. Fr. Wilfred spoke on a few incidents of Don Bosco's life. He explained how the Salesian co-operator came into existence and the importance for youth to be an active member of the Salesian co-operators.
Being an active member one could interact with others and continue the good work of Don Bosco in the Salesian Spirit. Fr. Wilfred enlightened us by saying it would be difficult in the beginning, but we should "NEVER GIVE UP, KEEP ON TRYING." We concluded that evening by each of us saying a prayer. We had tea and snacks and returned back to Borivli.
On June 15 our Provincial Rev. Fr. Michael Fernandes who came on for his annual visit to our Parish, welcomed us once again in the Salesian Co-operators Group, and presented a book on the Life of Don Bosco to help us journey in the Salesian way.
