19th July 2019 will be etched in our memory as a significant day in the history of the Province of St. Mary Mazzarello (INB) Mumbai. God in his bounty has blessed us with another community at Sindoni which is named under the patronage of Blessed Maria Troncatti.
The house was blessed by Archbishop of Goa and Daman Most Rev. Filipe Neri Ferrao, in the presence of Sr. Rita Dora Thomas, Provincial of St. Mary Mazzarello (INB), Fr. Sebastiano Mascarenhas, Superior General of the Society of the Missionaries of St. Francis Xavier, Pilar (S.F.X.), Sr. Catherine Pereira, the animator of Auxilium Vikas Kendra, Sindoni. There was a good representation of the Salesian Sisters of the Mumbai Province along with a few priests and religious from the neighbouring parishes. It was a feast to the eyes to see a huge gathering of the poor of the place as if to confirm their happiness and their trust in the Salesian Sisters for them and their children.
The solemn Mass was presided over by the Archbishop and he thanked the Sisters-past and present, for their missionary presence at Sindoni. After the Eucharist, a programme was organized to felicitate the dignitaries who contributed to the Centre in a small and a big way.
On this day we celebrated the birthday of Sr. Rita Dora Thomas and asked God to shower on her an abundance of graces and blessings.
