Don Bosco Past Pupils

On June 24, 1870, when in Italy, the Turin Oratory was celebrating Don Bosco'sFeast, there came a special group of visitors led by Mr. Charles Gastini. They were Don Bosco's Past pupils.On seeing them Don Bosco exclaimed. "One of my greatest joys is to hear people praising my past pupils." "Yes", he told them, "As I loved you when you were young pupils, now that you are grown up men, I love you much more............."

On behalf of the Past Pupils, Mr. Charles Gastini assured Don Bosco that in gratitude for the education received, they would form an association of the Past Pupils to be a LIVING MONUMENT OF DON BOSCO in the world. In fact Mr. Gastini became the 1st President of the Association of Don Bosco Past Pupils.

During the life time of Don Bosco every year, for eighteen years the Past Pupils returned to Don Bosco. Later, under the patronage of his successors, the number increased every year. Today with the spread of Don Bosco Institutions throughout the world, the association has grown into a world Confederation with its secretariat in Rome. In India, the National Head Quarters is in Mumbai, coordinating nine provincial Federations in Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Dimapur, Hyderabad, Guwahati, New Delhi and Trichy. The Kolkata Provincial Federation with its secretariat at the Provincial House, 52A RadhanathChowdhury Road, Kolkata - 700 015, is animating and co-ordinating nine active units of Don Bosco Past Pupils with a membership of over 1200.

It is the wish of Don Bosco and his successors that the students who leave a Don Bosco Institution should find the office of the Past Pupils Association, register their names, participate in the activities and take part of the privileges and responsibilities of a Don Bosco education following its Motto : "KNOW, LOVE, HELP ONE ANOTHER AND KEEP UNITED."
