The latest book from renowned Catholic scripture scholar, Fr Michael Winstanley SDB, walks us through the Gospel of St Luke, sharing his understanding of the Third Gospel, gained over many years of study,  to offer a fresh perspective, and enrich the reader's concept of discipleship.


In Walking with Luke: Thematic Studies in the Lukan Narrative, Fr Michael offers a learned analysis of the text, supplemented by his wide knowlege of Luke's contemporary context and the works of other commentators past and present, and reflections on each of the fourteen themes (or 'walks') he has selected.

Salesian Headteachers on Manila Study Tour

National School of Formation study tour to Manila 24-31 October 2017


Alison Burrowes, Headteacher of Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton and Ged Owens, Headteacher of Salesian College Farnborough joined with 8 other members of the National School of Formation (NSF), under the auspices of EducareM, to attend a week long study tour of the Philippines as the guests of Sr. Mary John Mananzan OSB at St. Scholastica's Priory.

The purpose of the study tour was to see at first hand the role of the church, within school and community, to address the issues of socio-economic, political and gender injustice through a socially oriented programme of engagement. While much of the engagement was within the specific context of the circumstances of the Philippines, that context had strong and clear relevance for the pursuit of justice and peace in the universal church.


Alison and Ged are pictured above with Cardinal Tagle.


Look out for more on the study tour, in a future edition of Don Bosco Today.



'Come to the Water' (Isaiah 55:1) was the theme for this year’s Mission Week at Thornleigh Salesian College Bolton. Students explored how God is calling us to come together as one community to make a difference and reach out to those in need.
