Republic Day and Provincial Visitation

The annual Provincial visitation of the Salesian Province of Hyderabad commenced on January 26, 2013. Fr Raminedi Balaraju, the Provincial, arrived early in the morning and was also the chief guest for the hoisting of the national flag on the occasion of the Republic Day.  The Republic day festivities were well organised by the Chaitanya Deepika group members with Br K. Sunil presenting a challenging message befitting the occasion. 

The Salesians had a Holy Eucharist celebrated by Fr Provincial in which he stressed on the importance of year of Faith and on being a Holy Salesian.

At 9.00 a.m. he started meeting confreres personally. At noon the Salesians had a house assembly. In the assembly, each confrere presented his own field of responsibility in the community. Post-lunch Fr Provincial met the students separately as per each course. He listened to them patiently and assured them his prayers.  

Again around 2.00 p.m. the Salesian staff gathered for the final report of Fr Provincial. Fr Provincial officially concluded the visitation at 4.30 p.m. and left the house at 5.00 p.m. to meet the OCD fathers and brothers.
