Dear Friends and Benefactors of Don Bosco’s Mission,

Thank you very much for all the sacrifices you make throughout the year just to be able to help our missions. We are very grateful to you for your very generous support towards our mission work for the poor and the marginalized especially the poor students under our care. As they look forward to a new school year and a new class, the expenses to begin the new scholastic year always weighs heavily on them. Your support helps us assist them. May the good Lord and our blessed Mother bless you for your generosity.

There is no one we think of more during the month of May, than of Mary, Our Blessed Mother. It is truly a Marian month. At the very outset of this letter, I assure you that we here at this Marian Shrine will continue to implore our Blessed Mother to shower on you and your dear ones her abundant blessings in gratitude for all the help and support you give our mission work. Don Bosco always reminded his Salesians that all our works are very dear to our Blessed Mother; we are only her humble instruments carrying out the mission that she entrusted to Don Bosco. You, our dear friend, with your help and support are our ardent collaborator in this mission work and your role means much to us.

This month is also special for us here at the Shrine. It is the month during which we celebrate the feast of ‘Mary Help of Christians’ the titular of our Shrine. As we celebrate this beautiful “Month of Mary”, I assure you of a special remembrance during all our Marian services. You, your dear ones and all your intentions will be prayed for. That’s our way of saying ‘THANKS’ to you. May Our Blessed Mother grant you all your prayers and petitions.

Entrusting you and your family to the care and the protection of our Blessed Mother,

I remain,

Yours sincerely and gratefully

Fr. Edwin D'Souza SDB
