On 30th January 2016 the feast of the beloved patrons Don Bosco and Blessed Laura vicuna was celebrated in the H.C. Auxilium School Vasant Vihar.
The celebration commenced with a solemn prayer service, offering each and every member of the school to Don Bosco and Blessed Laura Vicuna. This was followed by the offertory and a floral tribute by the sisters and the teachers to these saints. The programme continued with the students of the Bosco and Vicuna House praising their respective patrons highlighting the various aspects of their lives and singing self composed songs.
The Bosco House Captain highlighted the various aspects of the saint’s life and it was accompanied by the tablo depicting his life. Then the Vicuna House Captain talked about the sacrifices made by Laura Vicuna during her life.
Thereafter, a song sung by the Bosco House and Vicuna House members. The coordinators representing the two Houses, Ms Ushas and Ms Greeshma also gave an inspiring message on this day stating that, St. Don Bosco was a man of his words and his actions. He is the best role model for all of us even in today’s times. We have to imbibe the calm and composed nature of Don Bosco in the darkest hours. Laura’s sacrifice is beyond the understanding of our times, as sacrificing one’s own life is the supreme form of love. As Auxilians, we need to stand up against the wrong, unjust and temptations of life.
