Tiruchy, Oct. 16. The Relic Casket of Don Bosco was received with great honour at Thiruvengadam.  A welcome rally was organised by the boys on cycles and motor-cycles for about 5 kms.
At the Don Bosco School, a number of cultural programmes were organized to welcome the casket.  A solemn high mass was celebrated and thousands of devotees took part.  After the mass, the people were allowed to venerate the Saint.  Even though this area is predominantly populated by people practising other religions, they too came to pay respect and receive the blessings of the saint.  After the veneration, at about 1.30 p.m. a festive lunch was served to all who came to venerate the Relic. Post-lunch the casket was taken to Don Bosco Vidivelli.Fr. Dennis presented a talk on Don Bosco to the people who had gathered.  From Vidivelli, the casket was taken to Madurai,
