AHMEDNAGAR-MAHARASHTRA, OCTOBER 13, 2014: Commemorating the bicentenary of the birth of Don Bosco, the Salesian cooperators of the Ahmednagar region met, to reflect deeply on the life of Don Bosco. Forty nine Salesian cooperators and ADMA members were present for this meet from all the units of the region. It was organized and hosted by St. Anne's house.
The programme began at 6.00 p.m with an adoration that was animated by the Salesian cooperators unit of St. Anne's Church. Fr. Thomas D'costa (Rector) then welcomed the entire gathering. He also shared a few insights on the ministry of Don Bosco with the marginalized and needy youth. He concluded by inviting the assembly, to learn more about the life of Don Bosco and to imitate him in their daily lives. This meet was also an initiative, to get the Salesian cooperators and ADMA members of different units acquainted with each other and to bring them closer to each other; so that they could network and work in harmony with each other.
Fr. Rolvin, animated the next session of ice-breakers along with, some refreshing and fun games through which all the participants interacted with one another. The participants not only enjoyed themselves thoroughly, but also came to know each other more closely. The meet ended with a planning session for the various activities to be held during the course of this bicentenary year. The participants went back after sharing a sumptuous meal.
