On this day the same message of the SDB Delegate Rev. Fr. A L Jose, FMA Delegate Rev. Sr. Christina Kharkongor and the provincial Coordinator Mrs. Benita Marbaniang were read at the different centres.
The members took to heart the invitation of the Holy Father Pope Francis to the care for the earth, our common home, in which saplings were distributed and planted for a greener environment. The vitality of the association was also witnessed on this day through the promise taking of five new members at Mawtnum centre.
In each of the gathering the Salesian Cooperators deepened on the theme, “Good Christians and honest Citizens” the strenna of the Rector Major for 2020 through talks and other initiatives. Highlighting the theme of the day, the Mawlai Centre enacted a drama, which brought home the message of the day.
