One hundred and fifty four members, which included 93 Salesian cooperators, 35 past pupils and 11 members from ADMA, attended the celebration. Among those present was also the National President of the past pupils, Ketan Gala, National Vice President of the past pupils, Glenville Brass, who came from Bangalore, and also the ex-national delegate of the Salesian Family, Father Noel Madichetty, who came from Delhi.

The event began at 9.30 am with the celebration of the holy Eucharist, presided over by Father Savio Silveira, Vice Provincial of Mumbai. He delivered the homily in which he encouraged all present to be filled with the Spirit of Saint Don Bosco, who in his own time was an outstanding personality. Following the Eucharistic celebration, the main programme, which included speeches, musical items and even a skit, was held.

The Chief Guest Father Silveira delivered his key note address and urged the Salesian family to go beyond their school, parishes and community and to reach larger sections of society.  The highlight of the items was the presentation of the Rector Major,  Father Angel Fernandez Artime's message to the entire Family by Father Joe Braganza.

Among the speeches was the plea by Father Madichetty who invited the participants to engage generously in the funding of the activities of the Salesian Family. Games and lunch provided an opportunity for fellowship between the Salesian Family members.
