Tiruchy, Nov. 28. The Department of Catechectics and Evangelization organized two days convention on November 26-27, 2011 for the altar servers from the Salesian presences of the province of Tiruchy. 130 altar servers from 12 parishes participated in the convention.
It was a rainy day. The weather forecast was not encouraging to the organizers of the convention of 'Altar Servers 2011'. Yet 130 altar servers from 12 parishes of the Province of Tiruchy reached Don Bosco ITI, Madurai, manifesting their willingness and cheerfulness in participating the convention. Constant reminders and personal communication of the head of the department Fr.George Chinnappan to all the parish priests did really bear fruit.

The Convention began at 6.00 p.m. with simple and meaningful inaugural celebration. Fr.Francis, the Rector and Fr.George Fernandez, the Economer of Don Bosco ITI, were chief guests. In his inaugural address, Fr.Francis highlighted that children are to be given the best of things in their life. it is the obligation and duty of every salesian house to host this type of conventions. The first day was marked by party games, sing-song and preparation for the mass were animated by Fr.Samauel.

The first part of the second day was an in-put session. Prayers of the Eucharistic Celebration, Vocation Promotion,  Mass -Things and leadership were some of the topics dealt and presented in a child-friendly methodology. Peaceful and clean ambient, sumptuous meal and active and lively presence of Fr.Eugene, Sister Arul Selvi, Brothers Francis, Augustin & Arokiam and other lay collaborators made the day meaningful and memorable.
