Panjim, Mar. 27. Don Bosco Youth Services (DBYS) of the Salesian Province of Panjim (INP) organized the South Zonal Youth Day on March 21, at Don Bosco Sulcorna, Goa. Salesian youth from Benaulim, Fatorda, Sulcorna, Quepem and Loutolim participated at the Youth Day.
Rector of DB Sulcorna, Fr Bernadinho Almeida, celebrated the Holy Eucharist. Addressing the congregation, he spoke about the Kintsugi art, a Japanese art form of repairing broken pottery by mending the breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold or silver. Then, Fr Almeida passed around a reinstated pot wherein the youngsters poured their brokenness. Fr Edison, Rector of DB Benaulim, led the youngsters to reflect on the lockdown and pen down opportunities and discouragements they faced. A heart-touching sharing refreshed them to move on beyond COVID 19 impact.

The post-lunch session had a treasure hunt and relay games, keeping them on a competitive edge. The winning teams were honoured by Fr Ralin, Fr Tino and Sr Pushpa. After group selfies, the youngsters bid adieus recalling the enjoyable day they had after a long-time due to COVID 19 restrictions.
