Fr Kevin O'Donnell SDB, Sixth Form Chaplain at Salesian School Chertsey, highlights the important support the Catenians provide to young people, and offers his thanks.

 

On the morning of Friday 19th June, we welcomed three members of the Catenian Catholic Association to our Year 12 assembly.

 

The Catenians seek to help support many positive experiences for young people, especially involving caring for the sick and the marginalised. We had applied earlier for financial support for 4 of our students going to Lourdes as helpers this Summer. The Catenians have kindly given each student £75 towards the cost of the pilgrimage.

Blessed Mary Romero Meneses

On 7th July, the Salesian Family remembers a sister of the Daughters of Our Lady Help of Christians, who was born in Nicaragua and carried out her mission with the poor in Costa Rica.

Blessed Mary Romero Meneses was a contemplative in action in the mould of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello: a valued spiritual director and writer, who took a practical approach to alleviating the suffering of the people arond her, especially the young. She built proper homes for the homeless, organised volunteers to help families living in dire conditions, and built a church in Saint José to encourage the Salesian devotion to Our Lady Help of Christians.

Because of her work for the people of Costa Rica, the government made her an honorary citizen. She died in 1977, and was beatified in 2002.

St John Bosco Arts: Race for Life 2018

Written by

Students, staff and governors from St John Bosco Arts College weren't daunted by the heat and blazing sunshine as they completed their Race for Life on Monday 2nd July, in support of cancer research.

 

Over 40 of them followed a 5k course around the school site, in Croxteth, near Liverpool, in an event organised as part Cancer Research UK's Race for Life Schools Programme. Training and preparations began some time ago, and included a fundraising campaign and assemblies to raise awareness and encourage support, using materials provided by the charity.

 

In addition to the runners and walkers, the event was suported by staff and students acting as marshalls and water assistants in the scorching conditions on the day.

 

The school is very proud of its staff and students, and grateful to everyone who made the event possible: "What a fantastic way to raise money for Cancer Research and what a great team spirit!"

 

Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, and although more people are now surviving, there is so much more to be done to find new treatments and put an end to this disease. The efforts of the SJBA Race for Life Team are an inportant contribution to this.

 

If you would like to make a donation and support the St John Bosco 5k team, their JustGiving page will remain open for a while longer. 

 

Below: the first staff and student finishers.
