BHINGAR-AHMEDNAGAR, FEBRUARY 7, 2015: On February 3, at 7.30 p.m., the Don Bosco Zone celebrated its annual yatra and feast of St. John Bosco, whose feast is celebrated on January 31, universally.
Being the feast of St Blaise, the service began with the blessing of the throats of all those present. Fr. Nelson Falcao celebrated the Eucharist in K. B. Sujatha's home and preached on the relevance and efficacy of Don Bosco to parents in educating their children in the ways of human growth and God's ways. The Don Bosco zone animated the home based Eucharist. On the altar stood the portraits of Mary and Jesus with the inspiring words: 'Surely, the Lord is in this place' a quote from Genesis 28, 12. After the festive Eucharist, there was a meal for all.
Every one present wished to thank the patron St. John Bosco for his singular personal favours, his help in their lives and homes and the presence of the Salesians in Bhingar. A snehabhojan and fellowship meal brought the celebrations to a close.
