The inauguration began with the lighting of the lamp by Fr. Solomon Rapol, Rector, Fr. Gregory D’Cunha, Administrator, Cl. Clarence Martis and the six captains of the Bosco month teams. The theme of the month was explained by the compere after which, the incident of Don Bosco taking the young prisoners for a picnic was narrated which highlighted the meaning of the theme. The Rector was invited to cut the ribbon and thus declare the Don Bosco month open. He then invested the six captains with a badge of Don Bosco symbolising their role as leaders of their respective teams.
The inauguration ceremony ended with the Bosco anthem specially prepared for the month. The Don Bosco Sodality, which is organising the whole month, has lined up a series of activities which will help the community to know, love and imitate Don Bosco.
