St. John Bosco Parish was blessed by the presence and preaching of a world renowned apologetic preacher, Mr. Steve Ray. Faithful from fifteen parishes of the Borivli Deanery had gathered to hear him speak. They were spell bound as they listened to his insights on the Catholic Faith. Mr. Steve Ray never wanted to become a Catholic in the first place, but became one, moved by a process beyond his control. Mr. Steve Ray and his wife Janet 'read up' their way into the Catholic Church and once there by sheer dint of hard work did not stop there. They are going all out to fulfill the great command of Christ. A movement from ''Come and See'' to ''Go and Tell''.. Read More

The sun rose, the air was crisp and cold, the birds chirped and the day began.

The Bible reminds & reprimands us, ''If we do not serve the poor, God will send others to do so.'' Seems like a prophecy of hope. Finally after seven years of expectation and hope for me & four years of waiting for approval for a CR license, Ahmednagar has its own community radio station pioneered by Snehalaya Foundation, whose Director is Mr Kulkarni. This community radio station has as its mission to help the poor articulate their voices and serves different strata of society. Many years ago, Fr William Falcao, Rector Don Bosco Savedi, with the approval from the then Provincial Fr Ivo Coelho and his council, had given the green signal for opening a Community Radio station, Radio Bee FM at Don Bosco Savedi. That did not happen, due to the first query from MIB that was unanswered by us, due to change of leadership & management.. Read More
