|About||St. Dominic Savio High School|
St. Dominic Savio Complex, Andheri, Mumbai, is a Don Bosco Institution run by the Salesians of Don Bosco, an International Religious Organization founded by St. John Bosco. John Bosco was born on the 16 August 1815 in Italy and later was fondly know as Don Bosco.
St. Dominic Savio is a patron saint of the school St. Dominic Savio was born on April 2, 1842, to Carlo and Brigida Savio. They lived near Turin. When he was two years old, his parents returned to their native place at Murialdo on the outskirts of Castelnuovo d'Asti (which was the birth-place of John Bosco), and from where they had gone to Riva in 1841 His parents took great care to give him a Christian upbringing. By the age of four, Dominic was able to pray by himself and was occasionally found in solitude, praying. In his biography of Dominic, John Bosco records that Savio's parents recollect how he used to help his mother around the house, welcome his father home, say his prayers without being reminded, (even reminding others when they forgot) and say Grace at mealtimes unfailingly.
Resolutions made by me, Dominic Savio, in the year 1849, on the day of my First Communion, at the age of seven.
1. I will go to Confession often, and as frequently to Holy Communion as my confessor allows.
2. I wish to sanctify the Sundays and festivals in a special manner.
3. My friends shall be Jesus and Mary.
4. Death rather than sin.
