DB Youth celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Vailankanni

The youth group of Don Bosco Tuem celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Vailankanni with a futsal match and a rosary service on September 8, 2021.

The futsal match at 5:30 PM was held between the senior youth group members and the junior youth group members. The seniors team prevailed with an 8-6 final score. After a short break, the youth group members gathered for a rosary service. The rosary service animated as a pilgrimage; the group moved from place to place on the Don Bosco Tuem campus carrying the statue of Our Blessed Mother Mary. With each mystery, Brother Neil Fernandes animated it with reflecting on their lives, interceding with Mother Mary to help them to become better persons. The rosary service ended with a short message by Father Francis Britto in which he challenged the youth to increase their devotion to Mother Mary. He said, believe in the power of the rosary and Mother Mary will never abandon you.

The day ended with a festive meal wherein Salesian fathers and the youth mixed participated sharing their camaraderie. Father Jonathan Ribeiro ended the day with the final blessing, asking God to continue to bless them and guide them.
