By Father Joaquim Fernandes
Mumbai, Dec. 7. The Salesian Province of Mumbai celebrated Provincial Community Day at the Don Bosco Provincial House on December  4th, 2017. Nearly 100 Salesian confreres, along with the Provincial Councillors and most of the animators of communities, were present on the occasion.

Father Godfrey D'Souza sdb, Provincial of the Salesain Province of Mumbai flanked by the Provincial Councillors, presided over the solemn Eucharist at 6.30 p.m. at the Crypt of the Shrine of Don Bosco's Madonna. Father Provincial, Father D'Souza, gave a brief introduction during the Eucharistic celebration ''It is up to us Salesians to work with one another with our limitations and our expectations in creating unity in understanding what we share in common in upholding the gospel values and defining the boundaries to share in the mission of what God calls us to be''.  

Father Kenneth Pereira, Councillor for Formation shared his reflection on community life during the homily. ''We belong to the local, provincial and world community of the Salesians and these have its own challenges and opportunities.  We need to be praying and committed Salesians our coming together is because God has called each one of us and hence in a world which is wounded and divided and scattered we need to give hope and live the life of Christ.'' said he.

The cyclone Ockhi which was passing the city of Mumbai dampened the carpets which were laid out for the dinner and due to heavy rains the venue had to beshifted at the last minute to the Don Bosco Provincial House, Matunga.

The informal gathering around Father Provincial, Father D'Souza led by a group of confreres, began at 08.00 p.m.  Words of appreciation and thanks were expressed towards Father Provincial and the Provincial Council by Father Crispino D'Souza, Rector of Don Bosco High School,Matunga, the host community which was instrumental in organising the Province Community Day Celebrations.  

It was indeed a homely, informal, meaningful and unique celebration of the Provincial Community Day.
