From the Rector's Desk
It is with immense gratitude that I gratefully acknowledge your support towards our mission work. Thanks also for all the support you give us. It helps us continue our mission work. It is our prayer that the good Lord and his Blessed Mother generously reward you for all that you do for the poor and the needy under our care.
It is the personal sacrifices that you make and which you send to us, that help us to continue our crusade to assist the semi orphans, the marginalized and children under our care. Your thoughtfulness helps us to meet the needs of the unemployed, the sick and the destitute who come regularly knocking at our doors.
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
