From the Rector's Desk
On behalf of all the Salesians, I would like to acknowledge your generous support towards our work for the missions. Your great love for Our Blessed Mother and St. John Bosco, which prompts this great act of charity, encourages us to continue serving the poor, the needy, and the youngsters in our care.
All the support that we receive from you, our generous and self-sacrificing benefactors, is utilized towards meeting the educational needs of youngsters in the mission stations and offering scholarships to our poor students, medical aid for the sick and daily sustenance for the poor in our missions.
MASCHIO MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
"If you wish, remember me only as a kind and gentle priest who always wanted to reach out and help many in pain and need." - Rev. Fr. Aurelis Maschio
The Fr. Maschio Memorial Foundation was established on 9th September, 1997 on the occasion of the first death anniversary of late Rev. Fr. Aurelius Maschio, having a Mission statement as under:
Fr. Maschio Memorial Foundation is named after late Rev. Fr. Aurelis Maschio, who in imitation OF Don Bosco worked tirelessly for the welfare of the poor and the young. Fr. Maschio Memorial Foundation strives to strengthen the participation of the young and the poor, with preference for the marginalized, in developing processes that affect their well-being. The new forms of urban and rural poverty today call for more innovative interventions from the Salesians. It is an extension of the Salesian charism in the areas of activities that the Salesians have not been able to reach. MORE
