News in Relic


The excitement in the air was palpable as people waited with bated breath for the arrival of the Relic of Don Bosco, on Sunday, August 7, 2011. The timing of this visit could not have been better - Don Bosco was visiting Ahmednagar in the Silver Jubilee year of Salesian presence in this region. Months of planning and preparation had preceded this event, and now the moment had finally arrived! At precisely 9.00 a.m., the motorcade escorting the vehicle that carried the casket approached St. Anne's Parish, where a massive crowd of devotees had already assembled. Children from five schools marched smartly in front of the vehicle, accompanied by the military band that was in attendance. As the casket was lowered from the vehicle, the crowd surged forward, vying with one another to catch the first glimpse of the Relic of this great saint. . Read More

GRAND WELCOME TO THE PILGRIM RELIC AT BARODA
05/08/2011.  Mumbai #N.5278

News in Relic


Wednesday, August 3, was a sultry day in Baroda. The Salesians involved in preparing for the visit of the pilgrim Relic to Baroda watched with bated breath to see if the weather would improve or worsen. The weather forecast predicted frequent rains for Thursday (August 4) and thunder showers for Friday (August 5)... to our sad dismay. Gearing up for the worst, we had the simple plastic shamiana in the churchyard replaced with a sturdier one of tin sheets. Come Thursday, August 4, and all the weather predictions were found to be wrong! It turned out to be a pleasant day, and our enthusiasm was buoyed up even more by the air of festivity and excitement on the campus.. Read More
