Dear Friends and Benefactors 

It is with a heart filled with immense gratitude that I thank you for your support towards our mission work for the poor and the marginalized under our care. Your support helps us give them a sense of hope.

It was Mary Help of Christians who inspired, directed and encouraged Don Bosco to offer himself in the service of poor youngsters and she blesses and protects all those who help these youngsters to grow and mature. Be assured that your love and devotion to her draws down on you and your family her protection and her abundant blessings.

The season of Lent - a very important liturgical season - is upon us. It is a God-given time to help us to contemplate on the main events in the life of Christ: His Passion, Death and His Resurrection. We, the Church, walk with Him during these days and on this journey rests our Faith.

It is also a season during which we are encouraged to think of our less fortunate brethren by extending to them a helping hand. As we contemplate sharing our Lenten sacrifices with others, permit me the liberty of placing before you the needs of our poor. Throughout the year we are flooded with requests for medical aid from many a poor and deserving person. With your assistance we have helped as many as we could in the past and we look forward to your support to help many more ease their pain and suffering due to illness. Do lend us a helping hand through your Lenten alms.

Be sure that you and your dear ones will hold a special place during our moments of prayer in this Season.

I wish you and your dear ones a Holy Season of Lent and may it help all of us to grow in our love of God and our neighbour.

Yours sincerely

Fr. Edwin SDB
