150th anniversary of the founding of the SDBs

Tomorrow the Salesian Congregation celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Congregation.

On 18 December 1859, Don Bosco and 17 others - mostly young men - gathered together to pledge themselves to form a new society - the Society of St Francis de Sales. Thus was born the Salesian Congregation.

Tomorrow, 18 December 2009, Salesians all over the world will be commemorating the day by renewing their vows, and perhaps also in other ways.

In Nashik, the SDBs will celebrate the Eucharist together at 0630 hours at Divyadaan, and will renew their vows during the Eucharist.

The 'external celebrations' will be on 31 December 2010.

Do keep all of us in your prayers, dear parishioners.
