Tiruchy, Oct. 16. The Casket with the Relic of Don Bosco reached Tuticorin at 5:30 p.m on October 16, 2011.  A large number of people thronged the church to see, venerate and receive the blessings of the Saint.
People offered veneration  for more than two and a half hours.  Since more and more people were arriving at the church, to control the crowd, the church door has to be closed.  From here, the casket was taken to Our Lady of Snows Church in a procession of mass of people, more than 250 vehicles as a parade to honour the Saint.  At the church, more than 50 women took ''aarathi'' and welcomed the casket.  A solemn mass was offered by Rev. Ivan Ambrose, Bishop, Tuticorin Diocese at about 8.00 p.m.  During the solemn mass, 75 children received confirmation.  A night vigil was arranged for the whole night by Fr. Thommai sdb.  Next day morning Fr. Provincial, Albert Johnson sdb offered a holy mass at 6.45.  During the mass 50 children received the first communion.  More than 5000 people attended the holy mass.  After the mass, at 8.15 a.m., the casket was taken to Don Bosco mission at Melanmarainadu.
