A unique Festival for the Bi-Centenary celebrating 'The Province on Mission.'

This event will celebrate the 'Province on Mission' and is aimed at those who share or support our mission across the Provicne, including members of the Salesian Family. We will come together from all our local communities and areas of mission to celebrate Don Bosco's Birthday through our Liturgy, a presentation of Don Bosco - 'A Magic Saint!', a celebration meal outdoors, and a firework finale. This event will be a great opportunity to share time together, to celebrate who we are and to share this special moment with those with whom we minister. There will be the opportunity in our Liturgy to commit ourselves once again to the Salesian mission as we look to the future with hope.
