LONAVLA-PUNE, OCTOBER 9, 2014: Don Bosco Aspirantate Lonavla celebrated the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7, 2014. The celebration began with the celebration of the Eucharist. The homily, by Fr. Gregory D'cunha, brought before the boys the importance of praying and having devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary. The Eucharist was well-animated by the boys.
In the evening, after dinner, the Std. XI boys along with Br. Bryce Fernandes animated the rosary. They decorated the hall beautifully. During the rosary service each team had to pray the rosary and light the respective candles. There were also a few hymns which were sung in honour of Our Lady. Fr. George Carlos then gave the Good Night. He mentioned some incidents from his personal and Salesian life which bore the grace of Our Lady of the Rosary. He wished the boys to have an unstinted devotion to the rosary. The boys had a wonderful and grace-filled feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
