After the last of the nine-day novena that started on 13th May, The Salesian community, staff members and students of Don Bosco College gathered at Don Bosco Woyera Parish to kick start the Cerebrations for the feast of the blessed mother, Mary Help of Christian.

Fr. Alexander Kim was the main celebrant of the Mass, with Fr. Michael Mbandama as co-celebrant.

“We have to trust her to continue to give us her protection and become more faithful to her and to Jesus. We just continue to pray and honor her,” Fr. Kim said.

During the mass, offertory and various gifts were offered as a way of showing appreciation to God for the gift of Mary to the church.

The Don Bosco Staff members recently elected the new Staff representative months after the post fell vacant with the departure of Mr. Moses Changa Banda.

Fr. Michael Mbandama, the principal of the college announced the final results on the same day that the elections were held. 31 members casted their votes during the highly contended two-round voting process which saw Mr. Kananji coming out victorious, beating the other contestants.

In his acceptance speech, the newly elected staff representative thanked all the members who participated in the voting process, “I thank you all my fellow staff members for voting me into this office although I would have loved to see a lady holding this position as a way of promoting the 50-50 gender campaign, but since you have entrusted me in this office, I accept the position with thanks and let us work together”.
