By Emmanuel Twizeyimana
On Friday 26th August 2022 at the Don Bosco Kabgayi Oratory, the youth patronage was concluded in an event that attracted parents, salesian family and hundreds of children.
The event was preceded by a Eucharistic mass which was attended by the children, parents and local authorities.
About 456 children who participated in the patronage held at the Oratory were divided into 4 groups.
During the closing ceremony, the children presented what they have learned in the 9 days they have been in Patronage, including dances, games, poems and songs for each group.
Speaking at the event, the representative of the children said that they are very grateful to the Silesians who organized the patronage for them as it helps them to relax, gain friends and knowledge. They thank the parents who gave them permission to participate.
Emile RUKUNDO, on the side of the parents, thanked the Selesians for the many good things they do for children and asked that the patronage period be extended because patronage helps children a lot during the holidays.
Father BIGIRIMANA Sinaize commended the parents but also asked them for their continuous cooperation so that the education provided to the children keeps them on the right path.
After the event, all the children who participated in the patronage shared juice with the help of the animators.
