DBYG farewells Fr Will

Last DBYG

 

Last DBYGOn Sunday night December 4th fifty five young people (several of whom were also present on our very first DBYG meeting in March 2009) and six teachers gathered for the last time this year for our Don Bosco Youth Group at Xavier College and to bid farewell to our much loved DBYG Co- Leader and College Chaplain, Fr Will Matthews.

It was a wonderful night filled with fun, sport, music, faith, food and a few tears! I am sure St John Bosco himself and Fr Denis Handley looking fondly down upon us would have approved and enjoyed the night immensely.

Special thanks to Reto Gasser, Catherine Castles, Carolyn Maddocks and Deryck Pinchbeck, all of whom volunteered their time last night to make sure it was such a success.
