SALESIAN COOPERATORS GROW IN NUMBER

Sr. Catherine Fernandes FMA 

AHMEDNAGAR, MARCH 30, 2012: Faith and festivity combined to make March 24, 2012 an unforgettable day for our Salesian Co-operators of Laura Vicuna – Ahmednagar. Mrs. Swapnali Brahmne and her son Sagar Brahmne, Mrs. Usha and Mr. Sakahari Kedari, Mrs. Sureka and Mr. Tarachand Barse and Mrs. Jyoti Rupwate made their Promise.

 

This took place during the solemn Eucharist presided over by Fr. Manuel Murzello at St. John Bosco Church – Savedi and concelebrated by his confreres, in the presence of Sr. Phyllis Fernandes – FMA Delegate, Mrs. Claudina Pinto – Provincial Coordinator of Salesian Co-operators, many Salesian Sisters, a good number of their relatives and parishioners and few former Salesian Co-operators who were especially invited. The homily highlighted the unique grace bestowed on the seven new members, the vocation of a Salesian Co-operator and Don Bosco's immense trust in Mary Help of Christians.


The seven new Cooperators then placed colourful lamps in front of a decorated stand of Don Bosco, Dominic Savio and Laura Vicuna, as an expression of their commitment to make the young their life's mission by coming to know and imitate Don Bosco. Each of them received a Certificate, the Regulations and a memento. They were overwhelmed with profound gratitude to God. The liturgical celebration followed by dinner was a happy union of the Salesian Family. The occasion was made more significant, as an invitation was extended for new members to join the Association.
