During the evening of 16th August 1815, our founder, St John Bosco, was brought into the world, in the small village of Becchi in the Italian Province of Asti. Francesco Bosco, a widower with a young son, and his second wife, Margherita Occhiena, already had a son together, making John the youngest of three boys in this family of farm workers. 

FarewellSavioTeam2016 17

 

This week, the 2016-17 retreat team at Savio House, Bollington, ended their busy year together. While some of the team will continue there, others are going on to other things. The Province is very grateful for the superb work the team does, providing retreats to hundreds of young people from all over the country. We wish them all safe journeys, and every success in future, and look forward to meeting Team 2017-18 soon! Here's what Savio House said:

 

These last few days have been bitter sweet here at Savio as we've been saying our final goodbyes to the retreat team. It's been an incredible year with so many memories both in community and on retreats. Once again thank you to all the schools that have helped make this year special!!!

Don Bosco Publications is preparing a new edition of our popular Advent and Christmas Swatch, due out in the autumn, and we were delighted to enlist some help from Joseph, a sixth form student from Thornleigh Salesian College.

The week invites students to think about different issues affecting the world

 

St John Bosco Arts College Croxteth, near Liverpool, took the refugee crisis as its Mission Week theme to raise awareness of this vital issue. Figures from the UN Refugee Agency show an unprecedented 65.6 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. Text and pictures: Hannah Fowler, The Foundry Agency

 

Mission Week at St John Bosco Arts celebrates the school’s Christian ethos and invites students to think about different issues affecting the world and its local community.
