Addis Abeba: It was a unique occasion for the whole Salesian family as they gathered at the Salesianum to celebrate the feast of their founder St. John Bosco on 31 January 2017. The gathering began with the Solemn Eucharistic celebration presided over by the Nuncio Apostolic Mons. Bianco Luigi.
There were more than 20 priests who con-celebrated the Eucharist along with him and more than 150 people took part in the Eucharistic celebration. The singing was taken up under the leadership of the Salesian novices from Debrezeit and the postulants of the Salesian sisters in Addis Abeba. Immediately after the Eucharist, there was the Solemn dinner for all the invited guests in which nearly 200 people took part. Everyone who came for the celebration were in some way or other connected with the Salesian mission and were extremely grateful to the Salesians for the wonderful work accomplished by the religious order inside the country especially in the field of education. At the end of the dinner Abba Angelo Regazzo entertained the guests with few traditional party songs and the celebration ended on a happy note.
