Past Pupils Federation meet was held at Dum Dum on 1st May 2016. 22 members were present in all including the local delegates of the 2 communities of Barasat and Dum Dum. Sr. Elizabeth Joseph welcomed the group. The main agenda for the day was to plan out the program for the 27th November 2016 for the forthcoming Annual Past pupil’s meet.
We had the joy and privilege of the presence of Provincial Sr. Rose Ezarath, for the first time this year. She encouraged and boosted the members to venture out to serve the young and see what more can be done to reach out to the needs of the world. She enlightened us on the words of Mother General to the Past Pupils to understand the origin and rise of the Association at Valdocco by Fr. Philip Rinaldi and Sr. Catherine Arighi . ‘Being a past pupil is a gift, a stamp never to be erased. ‘Being a past pupil is an epiphany of the salesian charism in the world in the Mornese style.’ The day ended on a joyous note with this happy reunion of the past pupils federation to share a common goal and vision in a true family spirit.
