Vibrant Celebration of the Feast of Saint John Bosco at DON BOSCO MUHAZI TVET School
On Monday, January 31, 2022, more than 300 young people gathered at the DON BOSCO MUHAZI Technical and Vocational Training School for the celebration of the feast of Saint John Bosco.
It was preceded by a mass concelebrated by Father Raymond Bavumiragiye, Father Richard and Father in Charge of Education and youth in Gishaka Parish.
The feast also included the sacraments including baptism, confirmation and the first Eucharist.
In his sermon, Father Raymond called on young people to remain morally upright and strive to do what is right, as was the case with Saint John BOSCO.
He reminded them that even though Don Bosco was a child from a poor family, he only intended to work for the success and for the good of young people.
He added that the Salesian Education system includes staying with the young people at all times in order to help them achieve the desired goal.
After the mass, the young people of the DON BOSCO MUHAZI TVET School had the opportunity to express their joy through dances glorifying God and praising the courage of Don Bosco.
They showcased a variety of talents, including singing and poetry. The event ended with a lunch with the cake well prepared by the young people of this school.
After the day’s activities, we had the opportunity to talk to the young people who showed that the celebration has a lot of meaning for them as young people cared for at DON BOSCO School.
“He is a saint and a friend of young people. He helped young people in general. He took care of street children. He taught them discipline and brought them to schools,” the Dean of Students said.
For Mrs. Irene, one of the trainers, dancing and joy was something to enjoy.
In an interview with Father Raymond, he thanked the benefactors who help the school to continue helping young people because almost all of them come from poor families.
