A day in Battersea concludes what has been a life-changing experience. I never thought 2 weeks of travelling around with a hand would have moved me so much, but then again it wasn’t all about the hand.

Having a chance to sit down and reflect on what we have achieved, the people we met and the stories that have been shard reduced me to a blubbering mess. I began to think about the impact Don Bosco has had on my life and I traced the Salesian trail back to when I was 10 and had to decide which secondary school I wanted to go to. If it wasn’t for my decision to go to St John Bosco in Croxteth, I would never have experienced all the things that have shaped my life so far!

As I listened to the stories from people about Don Bosco’s influence in their lives, I never once realised that I was the same as them, cementing my sense of belonging in the Salesian family. So thank you to everyone I’ve worked with over the past 2 weeks for their support and enthusiasm, members of the public for their stories, Don Bosco for being born and inspiring a generation and God for inspiring Don Bosco and leading him to his vocation. Who’d have thought that a man born almost 200yrs ago would shape my way in such a drastic way? Not me!
