Dear Friends and Benefactors of Don Bosco’s Mission,

Another year filled with God’s blessings is coming to a close and as I look back, I cannot help but gratefully acknowledge that this has been a year of copious blessings. We have been blessed because of you! Even though the dark pall of the pandemic still looms over us I cannot but be amazed at your generosity as you share with us your Christmas joy.

We know what a difficult time it has been for you and so, we are all the more grateful to you for your generous support towards our mission work and projects for the poor and the marginalized.

The season of Christmas evokes dreams of peace and joy, of homeliness and tender love and these are the sentiments that we strive most to provide in our institutions that serve the poor and the marginalized. Their difficult situations draw them to us because they know that here in our institutions, they will find that “someone cares”. Be sure that whatever we are able to do to express this loving care is made possible through the thoughtful cooperation of good friends like you.

Together with all those in our care, we the Salesians and our seminarians on bended knee thank God for you and pray that His Love, Peace, Joy and his abundant blessings be showered on you and your dear ones at home during this Christmas season and throughout the New Year 2022.

Be assured that you and your family are in our prayers and remembered daily during the Holy Masses celebrated here at the Shrine, and in a special way during the Perpetual Novena Masses every Saturday. Thank you once again.

I take this opportunity to wish you and your dear ones a Christ filled Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with God’s blessings of Peace, Happiness and Good Health.

Yours sincerely and gratefully,

Fr. Edwin D'Souza SDB
