(Salesians Past Pupils’ Meeting at Dankotuwa)

Rejuvenating the Salesian Past-Pupils’ Association of Sri Lanka – 15th May 2016

A solemn gathering of ex-seminarians and past-pupils of Don Bosco Dankotuwa was conducted on 15th May 2016 at Don Bosco Seminary premises, Dankotuwa.

Recalling smiles full of happy memories during the time of aspirantate, the ex-pupils were solemnly welcomed by the Salesian Community at Dankotuwa, with a sort of official registration at 10.00pm.

During the Pentecostal Eucharistic Celebration presided over by the Provincial Superior of Sri Lanka, Rev. Fr. Joseph Almeida, exhorted that it is a reason for us to be happy and a right for us to claim that we are Salesian Past-pupils; that is not only through our mere words of boasts, but also by good Salesian style of living.

Fr. Felix Mallawarachchi, the Economer of the Vice Province of Sri Lanka and the Provincial Delegate for the Salesian Past-Pupils shared his words of appreciation with the 51 past-pupils who made it a point to be present for this blissful gathering in spite of heavy rainy climate. As he brought forth the suggestion for the ex-seminarians to help Don Bosco Sri Lanka, it was so evident how positively they responded.

A special note of thanks was offered to Fr. Melvin Fernando and the Community at Dankotuwa who gave their fullest support to make this day a memorable one.
