From the Rector's Desk
As I send you my Christmas wishes, the words of the Gospel of Matthew 2: 10 -11 come to my mind.
‘They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother…Then they opened their treasures and offered Him gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.’
Throughout this year, you have been looking at the star and you saw the Child Jesus in the poor, the destitute and the marginalized. You have opened your hearts and offered your gifts in your own little way as you recognized the Child Jesus in your needy brothers and sisters… ‘as long as you did this to the least of my brethren…you did it to me’ and that is what you hear him say to you.
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
