Written by

With hundreds of thousands of young pilgrims from around the world, a Salesian Youth Ministry group, and a group from the Salesian Sisters URSpace Glasgow project, arrived in Krakow this week for the 31st World Youth Day.

One of the highlights was the Salesian Youth Ministry day, attended by Mother Yvonne Reungoat, Superior General of the Salesian Sisters, and Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco. The international event was attended by around 6000 young people. Mass was celebrated, the Blessed Sacrament exposed for adoration, and plenty of fun and games were had, with singing and dancing thrown in. The Good Night was given at the end of the day by Mother Yvonne and Fr Ángel. Read more about it on ANS.

Although the weather was sometimes a little British, it didn't dampen the pilgrims' spirit at the open air masses or the amazing catechesis experiences, and the excitement of being with Pope Francis and hearing his message to them brought plenty of sunshine. 


We wish them, and all the WYD pilgrims, every belssing for the rest of their time in Krakow, and a safe journey home.

On Tuesday October 9th 2012 Hilary House was opened as a unit for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the grounds of Sacred heart Primary SAchool Battersea. The unit was called after Sr. Hilary FMA who taught in the school from1996-2004 when ill health caused her to retire. She continued to serve the children especially those with special needs until her untimely death in January. The unit consists of two classrooms both speciall constructed to hold 8 children each and a sensory room that will allow the children space to develop skills and also as a calm space where children can relax. Having it attached to the praimary school means that the children on this spectrum will be guaranteed support in main stream education until 18 years of age. It is a great honour that this unit has been named after Sr. Hilary as education of the young was her raison d'etre where she found fulfilment in her vocation. Members of Hilary's religiouss and natural family were present for the blessing by Archbishop Peter Smith

European Sisters Evaluate their XXII Chapter

Written by

Time and tide wait for no man… This is certainly true for the Salesian Sisters. It is three years since they held their XXII Chapter, with the mandate to revive the charismatic identity as a prophecy to the world, a call for all the FMA to be converted to love and express love, as a community in the educative mission. No small requirement, as can be easily imagined.
