KUDAL-MAHARASHTRA, MARCH 26, 2015: The community of Bosco Udyogshala Pinguli brought a meaningful end to their Sunday Apostolate in the parishes, institutes and the neighbourhood with the 'Oratory Day' celebrations on March 22, 2015.
In order to make it convenient for the children to participate in this meaningful event, the event was organized simultaneously at two places namely: Bosco Udyogshala Pinguli and Don Bosco Oros.
At Pinguli, 50 children from the Quasi-Parish of Nerur, Ambedkari Wadi and the House Oratory gathered while 60 children from the mass centres of Oros, Ranbamboli and the boys from Remand Home participated in the celebration.
The theme of the day was 'Like Don Bosco, With the Young and for the Young'. The day consisted of Prayer, Tele games, Fete games, Lunch, a Cultural Fiesta and many prizes. The youngsters celebrated Don Bosco in this the Bicentenary of His Birth with much joy and frolic. The day was carefully planned under the guidance of Fr. Brian Moras, Cleric Christovan Cardozo and Fr. Francis Silveira.
Both the children and the Pre-Novitiate Course Boys took leave with beautiful memories of a day well spent. The Pre-Novices were well initiated into organizing an event of this stature. Don Bosco is alive and kicking in this part of Sindhudurg.
