Chennai, Jun. 20.

A gathering of sixty former Salesians and Past Pupils of Don Bosco formation houses from all over India spend two days re-living their Don Bosco days at the Citadel, Chennai, on June 12, 2022, under the banner of the Association of former Salesians, aspirants and novices of Don Bosco (AfsanDB).

The association began during the COVID pandemic limiting itself to the virtual fora. Now that the world is emerging from the pandemic fear, a national-level meet was organized at Chennai, the southern cradle of Salesians in India. The gathering selected a national council that passed the bylaws and formed formal zonal committees.

A task group of the association set up departments to help zonal units work for Don Bosco Mission and an action plan for the association and formally approved it at the national meet. The association has resolved to strengthen the movement by inviting more members from those who left the congregation and to create ten departments through which the association could carry out its activities to further the mission of Don Bosco and thereby promote vocations for the Salesian Congregation. The various departments for the action plan are: Afsan Home Division, Training Division, Social Service Division, Communication Division (internal & external), Edu Care Division, Finance Division, Empowerment Division, Environment Division, Entertainment Division and Kushi Wellness Division.

Father L Don Bosco, Vice-Provincial of the Salesians of Chennai Province, inaugurated the meeting. The participants left with sweet memories of their youth at Don Bosco.
