A Sunday of the 17/11/2013 at Don Bosco CALM- Namugongo

In the family of Don Bosco Calm, there felt the 17/11/2013 a fully flowered Sunday. Although with the family of DON BOSCO Calm Namugongo the most centered programs of day to day life is the holly mass which is celebrated in the same manner, the celebration of the holly mass on this the 17/11/2013 was really of great colures and joy.  We can even ask ourselves how, what so special, why is the joy…. and so many questions that we might ask ourselves, but now here you are, the beauty of the brotherhood that exists in the family of Don Bosco Calm was really witnessed when the holly mass was about to begin with the procession song. The small chapel in the centre of the compound was filled with the members of the family of Don Bosco Calm and many other faithful, different group of people who came to share the joy that was about to begin in this family of Don Bosco and the local church of the Archdiocese of Kampala.


A the  very beginning of the entrance song, there appear 14 young smart boys who have come from a long journey of about twelve  months of preparation. And right behind them comes two Salesians Fathers, Father Jean Marie and Father Richard who were at their journey together right from the beginning. So, as soon as the chapel came to bring the last echo of the entrance song, Father Jean Marie officially opened the mass with the prayer, meanwhile the 14 boys took their seats. All attentively listened to the gospel and the homily, after which all the Christians shared their joy with that of the 14 boys.


They came in front of the alter, and Father Jean Marie asked “What do you want from our Mother Church? The only words found at their lips were – we want the sacrament of baptism. And so there and then, they were granted the chance to receive the sacrament of baptism. But you know what, as soon as the Fathers accepted to give these boys the sacrament, with joyful lips and hearts a voice of descending and ascending sound of praise was sung until the final part of the sacrament of baptism which again followed by the sacrament of Eucharist. Still arising from among the Christians present the song of thanksgiving and praise came to be heard.
