Michael Magone 500

The latest in the new Pocketbook Series from Don Bosco Publications is The Life of Michael Magone, by Philip J Pascucci SDB.


This little volume tells the inspiring story of a former street boy whose life was transformed by the influence and education of Don Bosco. Our founder met Michael by chance, and instantly recognised the boy's natural leadership qualities, and offered him the opportunity to join the Turin oratory, where he grew and thrived for the rest of his short life.

Br Joe Tran SDB and Br Gregory Echegwo SDB are Project Europe missionaries based in the UK. This week, they are at Provincial House in Bolton for preparation days with Fr Bob Coupe SDB, before maling their final professions in Battersea on 16th July.



In keeping with Don Bosco’s vision, our communities are closely involved in the lives of their associated Salesian schools. In Bolton this week, we added ‘workplace’ to the Salesian window of home, school, playground and church, when Don Bosco Publications and Salesian Link hosted Winner, a Year 10 student from Thornleigh Salesian College, for her work experience placement.


During the week, Winner learned about the work of our small publishing house, dealing with deliveries of our latest publication, preparing orders for despatch, and working on the essential tasks of editing and proof-reading.
