On Monday 31st October 2011 the Province celebrated the Jubilees of eight Salesians.
Fr. Tony D'Souza who was a former Provincial was celebrating his Golden Jubilee of Profession as a Salesian.
Frs. Alexander Fernandes, Dominic Lisboa and Nelson Falcao celebrated the Silver Jubilee of their Ordination.
Frs. Blany Pinto, Edison Fernandes, Edwin Colaco and Ignas Macwan celebrated the Silver Jubilee of their Profession as Salesians.
The Celebrations began with the Holy Eucharist in the Shrine of Don Bosco's Madonna in Matunga. Fr. Tony the senior Jubilarian was the main celebrant.
After the Eucharist there were family photographs being taken before the gathering came together for the reception.
It was a day of appreciation and joy for all that these Salesians were to the Province and to their communities and to the people they ministered to in their years of dedication as Salesians and priests.
Each of the Jubilarians received a citation from the Provincial in thanks, appreciation and gratitude.
All of them were with their families and loved ones who stood with them all these years as Salesians.
We thank and appreciate them for their work, toil and labour in the ministry and as Salesians in their communities and wish them the very best as they continue to carry the flag of Don Bosco to many more people and youngsters.
