On the radiant day of May 5th, 2024, the Aspirants of Dankotuwa, huddled in the heart of serenity, embarked on a jubilant journey to honor their beloved patron, Dominic Savio. Amidst a tapestry of vibrant traditions and devout reverence, the atmosphere was ablaze with fervor and festivity. The pinnacle of the day’s festivities was the resplendent High Mass, a sacred rite presided over by the respected Reverend Father Roshan Miranda SDB (Provincial Superior of LKC Province), a beacon of spiritual guidance from the esteemed LKC Province. As hymns soared and prayers ascended, the sanctity of the occasion enveloped all in attendance, weaving a tapestry of divine grace and celestial harmony.

Following the solemnities of the Mass, the grounds of Dankotuwa resonated with laughter and camaraderie as the Savio Festa unfolded. A mixture of activities awaited the eager aspirants and their esteemed parents, promising an abundance of joy and cherished memories. From spirited games to heartwarming performances, every moment was imbued with the spirit of friendship and fellowship. The air was filled with the aroma of delicious delights, as sumptuous feasts delighted the senses and nourished the soul. Amidst the convivial chatter and infectious laughter, bonds were strengthened, and memories were etched into the annals of time.

In the hushed moments of reflection that followed, amidst the fading echoes of laughter and the gentle rustle of leaves, one truth became abundantly clear: the spirit of Dominic Savio would forever reside in the hearts of the Aspirants of Dankotuwa, guiding them on their noble journey of faith and fellowship.

We are grateful to Rev. Fr. Susith Milroy SDB (Rector of Don Bosco Seminary Dankotuwa) for his great efforts to make this program successful. We pray that God may continue to bless all the Salesian and Aspirants of Dankotuwa Seminary.
