On Sunday of the Holy Trinity Solemnity at about 1PM, the bell for lunch was rung and the boys orderly marched for lunch to feed their bodies.

After lunch, there was a need to rest for those who wanted and still those with passionate hearts about their talents went on to add something to their talents. So therefore, some boys were seen in the football pitch playing soccer with Brother Hubert where as others went on with Brass Band training with their tutor.

The evening of the day was graced by a wonderful and surprise visit of strangers who were now becoming friends from the United States. The line of visitors included a Nigerian Professor, dons from Chicago and students from the US. Among them was Aunt Rose, a church member and Salesian friend. The visitors were welcomed and entertained by the boys. Acrobatics stars kicked on the show with somersaults. Visitors saw the lads flipping in air and were shocked in surprise! The boys’ performance was scintillating; “I personally saw them step on one another to the height of a certain tree”. They went ahead to dive in and out of fire and came out never burnt. I think they had the Holy Spirit of God with them; the Spirit that never burns to destroy the good but instead that Spirit that made them cry “Abba Father” in whatever they did.

After their performance, it was now time to show off with dancing strokes. The dancing group came out with the tune of “tuli majje” which left the visitors shaking their bodies with smiling faces. The song was followed by Disco Lights and Byagaana. These two songs instigated the visitors move off their seats and joined the dance group. The Salesians too joined the dance in great joy and they all brought out a perfect and unified style of dance. When the music ceased, Rev Fr Eli called out the visitors to introduce them and also introduced the boys starting with best performers who were recognized with prizes from the visitors.


Finally, it was time for the visitors to depart. They called for a group photo before leaving and immediately after the photo, there was a little interaction with the boys and they had to catch up with their flight. However, the place was blessed that one of the visitors was to remain as a volunteer till October. This was great joy for the pupils of Don Bosco. The Holy Trinity day ended very well with recitation of the Holy Rosary.
