From the Rector's Desk
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.
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
