Old Bedeans Association

 

The OBA is unit of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco. It is affiliated to the Chennai Provincial Federation which is part of the Indian National Federation and World Con-Federation of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco.

The first formal gathering of Past Pupils occurred on 24 June 1870, when Carlo Gastini gathered some of his former classmates from the first Oratory to meet with Don Bosco for his name feast day.

The OBA was started on 30th October 1925 and registered under the Chennai Provincial Federation on the 5th January 1969.

We are deeply indebted to its former leaders who held the reins of the OBA and help us sustain as a united family of Old Bedeans. A special thanks to Mr. Titus Jesudoss, Mr. A. Augustine and Mr. Davis Thomas for their tireless efforts and able leadership.
