BIS #1897 INTER-NOVITIATE ORIENTATION PROGRAMME BY DBYC
PUNE, JUNE 30, 2010: The Salesians of Don Bosco Youth Centre organized a three day ‘Inter-Novitiate Programme’ for the sister novices of fourteen different congregations at Maria Assumpta Convent from June 28 to 30, 2010. Around sixty three novices participated in the programme. The three days were packed with sessions on self-discovery, building relationships, time management, leadership skills, inter cultural sensitivity and consecrated life in a digital world. All the sessions were complemented with ice breakers and interesting games. Fr. Edison Fernandes and a team of Salesian clerics animated the various sessions in a creative Salesian style.
The novices were enthused and participated actively. On the last day the novices concluded the session by staging skits based on the various sessions they had attended during the past three days. Besides getting an opportunity to inter-mingle with each other the novices had an enriching and hearty experience.
