Dear Friends and Benefactors
It is with a heart filled with immense gratitude that I thank you for all your generous support offered towards our works of charity 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.
We are in the season of Lent; it is my wish that your contemplation on the passion of Christ will help each and every member of your family to grow closer to the heart of our suffering Saviour. Here at our Shrine you will be present in our prayers and our various Lenten devotions, especially the Way of the Cross
I thank you once again for all your care and concern for our mission work and your generous support for our many projects. We can only thank God and express our gratitude to you for your concern and interest in the work we do. In return, we assure you of a constant and fervent remembrance in our prayers.
We pray that Almighty God and his Blessed Mother bless and protect you always,
Fr. Edwin D'Souza SDB
