Chennai, Nov. 6. A large number of people gathered in Pathiavaram and Chetpet on November 06, 2011 eagerly seeking the blessings of Don Bosco. Both these parishes were once under the care of the Salesians. The Salesians handed them over to the diocese more than 40 years ago. But the people still have great veneration for Don Bosco.

The relic reached Pathiavaram around 2.45 p.m. and it was kept in the church for about two hours to allow the large number of people who had gathered there to venerate the relic of the saint.

From Pathiavaram the relic was taken to Chetpet around 5.00 p.m. Here the people had waited patiently for more than five hours for the relic to arrive. Many priests and sisters from nearby parishes had assembled in Chetpet to pay their homage to Don Bosco. Around 7.15 p.m. the relic left for Polur.
