Oscar Lobo

YERWADA, FEBRUARY 08, 2012: The feast of our patron saint, Don Bosco, January 31, 2012, was an occasion for joyful celebrations. This year it was very special because it heralded a dream to reality project – the inauguration of the new building of the senior college. No wonder then; that Fr. Donald Fernandez, the Principal, was beaming all the while at the realization of his dream project which got completed after years of painstaking work chequered with several obstacles.
The celebration of the Holy Eucharist started proceedings, with the main celebrant being Fr Michael Fernandes, Provincial, Mumbai Province. School children and parishioners attended the mass. This was followed by the inauguration of the college building by Fr Michael. Also gracing the occasion were Fr. Ajoy Fernandes, Vice Provincial, and Fr. Boni D'Souza, in charge of the educational board of the Province.
Fr. Michael and Fr. Ajoy jointly blessed the building and were vocal in their appreciation of the efforts of Fr Donald in the successful completion of the project. Fr. Michael spoke about the dual education system, and appealed to students to focus on their studies and take advantage of the quality education provided, so that they would be adequately equipped to meet the challenges of the world outside the academic sphere.
