Remembering Sr Cecily, one year on

  May 24th was the first anniversary of the death of Sr Cecily Dunn FMA and the Bosco centre gathered to remember her leadership and to dedicate themselves to building on the foundation that she built.   There were about sixty people at the event including members of Cecily's family from Dublin and Scotland. The Salesian Sisters were represented at the celebration by Sr Mary and Sr Mary Louise from Battersea and Sr Pat from Beckenham.   The picture shows Fr David O'Malley blessing tokens of salesian spirituality which are held by Romaine Shilling one of the management team of the Bosco Centre.

Catch up with the Sisters in Beckenham!

An update from the Sisters in the Beckenham community, who are developing a new mission working with female asylum seekers.   We continue to be amazed at the Providence which comes our way weekly. Just a couple of recent examples...   A lady from the parish arrived quite late in the evening about two weeks ago with a large planter filled with polyanthus of all colours for near the front door. She also trundled round with a brilliant Dyson Hoover which is very efficient and has a strong capacity for grabbing up all the dust which has accumulated in corners. Another amazing sign of Providence...

Bosco Centre Inset Day

The staff of Bosco Centre in Bermondsey enjoyed an INSET day at Battersea this week. The group explored resilience in adults and looked at how Don Bosco's approach built resilience in those who care for the young. There will be a second INSET for the staff of the Bosco Centre Nursery later in the year. This project was led for many years by Sr Cecily Dunn FMA who died suddenly last summer. The Centre is still coming to terms with that sad loss and asks for the prayers of the Salesian family as it moves forward. You can read more about the Bosco...
