VIRAR, JAN 20, 2015: The Salesian parents residing at Thane and Palghar district celebrated Parents Day on January 17 at Jyoti Mata Church, Agashi Virar.
The day began with the Holy Eucharist being celebrated by Father Vishwas Pereira and concelebrated by Fathers Rolvin D'mello, George and Royal D'abreao.
