Dear Friends and Benefactors
My greetings and good wishes to you. Thank you for all the support and generous sacrifices that you make to help us in our mission work. Thank you for keeping our ministry so close to your heart. We sincerely appreciate your support and feel encouraged to go ahead with hope in our mission of Don Bosco towards the education of the poor and the marginalized youngsters under our care. May the good Lord and our blessed Mother abundantly bless you and your family for your generosity towards us.
August is a special month for us here in India. We have a double reason to celebrate. On the 15th of this month we celebrate the solemn feast of Mary Assumed into Heaven, the patroness of our Country and secondly it is our Independence Day. As we celebrate our Independence Day, we recall the memory of our great patriots who bought us freedom at the cost of their lives. The best way to remember and salute them is in turn to work for the freedom and the betterment of others. We are happy to serve our Country, especially in the field of social and economic development, education and rehabilitation of youth, with a hope and promise for a better future through our Salesian Institutes. Each time you contribute towards our works you collaborate with us in this noble cause.
Here at this Marian Shrine, we remember you in a special way with gratitude, during our daily Holy Masses being celebrated privately here in the Shrine. We pray for all our benefactors and their intentions, especially to keep you safe and well in these difficult times. You and your family are in our prayers.
Imploring the blessings of the Lord and entrusting you and your dear ones to the care and the protection of Our Blessed Mother, I thank you once again for your generosity and your support.
With kind regards
Fr. Edwin D'Souza SDB
