Rector's Message

Principal's Note


Fr. Don Bosco Augustine

M.Ph., S.T.D., Systematic Theology

Welcome to the Website of Don Bosco Theological Centre, kavarapettai!! We are happy to re-launch our website in view of the Decennial celebration of our Centre. I am proud to have a set of very dedicated staff who impart theology and formation towards the ministry of Priesthood to the students with great love and interest. We have students who are interested in their priestly formation. They are keen on transforming themselves for better so as to be a catalyst of change in the society. True to our motto “IN CHRIST FOR HUMANITY,” the Centre strives to excel in tuning students to become messengers of Christ for the downtrodden in society following the footsteps of our Father and Founder St. John Bosco. I wish them all the best for this endeavour.


Please continue to visit our website for updates throughout the year. Any questions please feel free to contact me at


Thank you.
