The youth from the various parishes of Nashik and Igatpuri will go to Sanjivan Ashram, Sinnar, tomorrow, Sunday, 10 October 2010, to meet one of the legends of Nashik - Swami Shilananda, SJ, all of 83 years old, and fighting fit.
Youth of Don Bosco will meet at the parish at 0645 hours, and take a bus to Nashik Road Bus Station, where we hope to meet up with the other youth (from Holy Cross and St Ann's). St Patrick's youth will proceed directly by bike, and the Igatpuri youth will also reach Sinnar by themselves. Some brothers from Divyadaan will also be joining us.
From Nashik Road we take a bus, hopefully latest by 0800, for Sinnar. From Sinnar to the Ashram is a walk of about 3 kms., but there are also rickshaws for those who want.
At the Ashram, we will meet Swamiji, have some snacks, then the Sunday mass, followed by lunch (each one to carry!). By 1530 we hope to move back towards the city.
So: travel expenses to be borne by each one; lunch to be carried too. Plus a Rs 50 per head contribution towards snacks.
