A WEDDING WITH A DIFFERENCE
“I owe everything to Don Bosco. It is the system of Don Bosco that has made me who I am today. I know my past and I know my present. I will live by the lessons I have imbibed. I owe a lot to the many Salesians and others who have contributed so much to my growth. If it were not for them I would have been lost in a world that didn’t care if one lived or died!” Babu Savio was speaking at the grand reception that was accorded to him at Sneha Bhavan, Pallurtuhy after his wedding at St. Thomas Moore Church on August 18, 2013. The Bishop of Cochin Most Rev. Dr. Joseph Kariyil had fourteen Priests including the five from Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan Project assisting him as he pronounced Babu Savio and Sheron Ann Jose husband and wife!
The function had a touch of royalty with the presence of central and state Ministers, Members of Legislative Assembly, the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor and the chair persons of different committees of the Cochin Corporation. Present also were numerous past pupils, well-wishers, the Director and staff of the Naval Institute of Aeronautical Technology, Cochin, friends and well-wishers numbering over 600.
The lunch was sponsored by the Mayor Tony Chammany who also helped to meet a major portion of the expenses.
Babu Savio M.Com, M.Ed, MBA , PhD and Sheron Ann Jose M.Com, NET have now assumed the task of sharing the spirit of Don Bosco and lighting up the lives of those whom they meet especially of the disadvantaged in society. Babu knows that he was once as helpless as most of our children deprived of parental love and care!
