Written by

The week following Friday 25th November 2011 was a busy one, with three overlapping meetings involving Salesians in the British (GBR) Province and Project Europe.

During the first weekend, the overseas missionaries who have come to our Province in recent years as part of Project Europe joined other missionaries in Rome for three intense days with the General Councillors for Missions and for Formation.

Every year the Province celebrates significant Jubilees of profession and ordination for Salesian brothers and priests.

Br Donald MacDonald celebrated his 60th anniversary of Religious Profession in Bolton on 10th September 2011. Br Donald was born not far from Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. He used his trade and teaching skills in Salesian schools in Scotland and England and was also a missionary for many years in Liberia and Ghana. His celebration brought together many of those whose lives he has touched through his work and his legendary hospitality.
