AHMEDNAGAR, AUG 8, 2017: Eighty seven youth from three Salesian parishes, in the Ahmednagar region, namely St. Anne's church, St. Johns' church and Don Bosco church celebrated Friendship day on August 6.
The celebration began with a prayer service animated by the youth of St John's Church, after which Father Thomas welcomed all the youth to the event. Father Vishal Lopes then addressed the youth on the concept of love. He dwelt on the different forms of love, namely causal relationships, true friendships, infatuated love, fraud love and committed love. Father Vishal incorporated elements of music and games to put forth his point.
The organisers also stressed on the youth making use of various Church social media channels, like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter to find out about the various activities planed at a parish level. The event ended with every youth being given three friendship bands to make new friends.
