Students and youths in the three Don Bosco institutions over the weekend gathered at Tetere Don Bosco Hall, east of Honiara, to celebrate the Wantok Bosco day.
The event was animated by the Salesian brothers and sisters from the three Don Bosco institutions; namely Henderson, Gizo and Tetere Don Bosco.
Parish Priest (PP) of Tetere Christ the King and the Rector of Don Bosco Tetere Fr Robinson Parappilly said Wantok Bosco day is one of the important events for students, staff and the Salesian brothers and sisters of the three brother schools.
“The gathering purposely to unite the Salesian Brothers and Sisters, Students and young people from the three Schools under one roof to share, have fan together and listen to talks that will curve their lives for God. It is also to allow young people to come together for the prayer formation,” the rector said
He added the event is celebrated annually, last year a similar event was held at Don Bosco Henderson and this year they celebrate the event at Tetere Don Bosco.
The talks were facilitated by the Salesian cooperators from the three schools which include reason and discernment, the importance of religion in the life of young persons and loving kindness as an attitude of service.
A youth from the Unity Ministry Taloa of Red beach Mr Victor Pule said indeed the programme is significant for youths and himself as a young person.
“The programme is very important especially for youths and young people in our communities. “It is good to spend our times listening to talks and Gods words instead of roaming around and involve in unwanted activities that will destroy our connection with God,” he said
He said from the talks he now has a clear understanding on how he should discipline himself accordingly especially to what he should follow in his personal life.
The event was held for three days commencing on Friday, August 27, ending on Sunday.
The theme was ‘Don Bosco youth Holy formed and sent for service’.
