Just another snowman?
There has been quite a lot of snow this year at the GBR Provincial House in Bolton. On 24th December 2009, Brother Mateusz took a break from clearing the car park to make a snowman. But it wasn't just any old snowman.
Brother Mateusz put his artistic talents to work and before long a familiar face began to appear. He had to contend with a few difficulties. An inconvenient rise in temperature caused the occasional loss of nose or ears, and manoevering vehicles sometimes threatened a more comprehensive demolition, but the sculpture lasted long enough for a photograph or two.
Brother Mateusz is one of five young Polish Salesians who are 'on loan' to the GBR province while improving their English and gaining experience of Salesian youth ministry in our schools, parishes, and other work for young people.
