Mumbai, May. 26. On 24th May, the feast of Mary Help of Christians, nineteen young men made their First Religious Profession in the Society of St. Francis de Sales at 7.00 A.M. in Don Bosco Parish, Nashik. The Provincial of the Salesian Mumbai Province, Rev. Fr. Godfrey D'souza sdb presided at the solemn and meaningful and well-animated Eucharist, with several other Salesian Priests concelebrating. There were also many benefactors and well-wishers present for the celebration.

In his homily, the Provincial focused on some of the points taken up during the GC 27 making the novices aware of the importance of the day of the first profession in their lives. He brought to light the central point of their mission and asked them to be always committed to Christ and be radical witnesses of His love.

After the homily, the 19 young men professed the vows publicly. Eighteen of the newly professed also received the cassock and the book of the Constitutions and Regulations as Clerics, while one received the Crucifix as a Lay Salesian Brother.

There was also an extraordinary profession of a FMA novice who made her first Religious vows in the institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians during the same occasion.

In the evening, there was a short felicitation and thanksgiving programme during which the newly professed expressed their gratitude to Don Bosco in the name of the Salesian Congregation, to the Provincial, the Novice master and the Formation staff.
