As you will already know, this is a very special year for the Salesian Family. We are celebrating 200 years since the birth of St. John Bosco! To help mark this special year, the Salesian Youth Movement are holding an international youth gathering this summer, walking in the footsteps of Mary Mazzarello in Mornese and John Bosco in Turin.
The highlight of the week will be an overnight stay in Colle Don Bosco, waking up in the home of St. John Bosco on his birthday!
This event will see young members of the Salesian Family gather in Italy from all over the world. For our group, the initial weekend will be spent in Mornese, visiting the places of St. Mary Mazzarello. On Monday 10th, we will travel to Turin and spend a week visiting the places of St. John Bosco, as well as having opportunities for prayer, mass and socialising.
On Saturday 15th August, we will make our way to Colle Don Bosco (by foot where possible!) and camp overnight, taking part in a vigil, followed by morning mass on Don Bosco’s birthday.
It really will be an amazing week and we would love you to join us! Here are some important details:
