prayer and bbqBootleAnimatorsVolsNorth

 

Last week a number of Salesian Animators and Volunteers met together for a relaxed evening at St James'. We started with evening prayers and a short reflection, which was then followed by the BBQ in the garden and nibbles in the community room.

 

The evening was a lot of fun, a great opportunity to catch up with everyone., and we plan to make this a regular event.

Salesian Mission Days 2018 - Thailand

Written by

SMDThailand3 500

 

Internal migration is a major feature in Thailand, as industrialistation increases and people move into the cities, where they have to adapt to a hectic lifestyle, away from their close-knit rural families. The country has the second-largest economy in Southeast Asia, and is one of the most developed countries in the region. The capital, Bangkok, has grown rapidly to a population of 10 million, and a further 2 million people travel in and out of the city each day to work.

 

The Salesians are present in this bustling city, working with the young in the spirit of Don Bosco, and this week's Salesian Mission Day film focuses on the professional training they offer to enable young people who are deaf or blind to live independent lives so they can achieve a better future and participate as fully as possible in society.

We are happy to report the successful launch of Savio 100, the fundraising scheme at Savio House which we announced here in early February. Over 40 people have comitted to donate £100 per year, some even more, and we anticipate raising £6000 in this our first year. While donors are spread across the Province, 70% are based in the Parish of St Gregory's, Bollington, where Fr Martin was invited to make an appeal on the weekend we celebrated Don Bosco's Feast and received such a generous response.

Salesian Mission Days 2018 - India

Written by

AtComputerIndiaThumb 500

 

This week, our Salesian Mission Day looks at India, where in less than a decade, the average age is set to be 29. The Salesians in India strongly feel that this is an opportunity to equip the nation for the future by forming young people in the vocational skills they need to succeed in a highly technical jobs market, and in Salesian style, integrating this with social, moral and leadership development through cultural activities, sports, and education in ethics and values.
