A Salesian Advent - 4 Perspectives on Advent 2017

Written by

AdventAnimation 500


This year, we will be looking at Advent from four different Salesian perspectives: a school; a youth ministry project; a religious community; and a parish.


As we share in their preparations for the Nativity of the Lord, we can connect as one Salesian Family across our Province, and reflect together on hope, peace, joy and love.


The first stop on our Salesian Advent journey is at St John Bosco College, Battersea. Take a look.





Fr David O'Malley SDB writes about a recent event in Battersea. Photo above shows stars of the show,  Ben Whitehead, Danny Whitehead, John Lumsden, James Hume, with Lauren Soley and Josie Kemp in the front row.


Sacred Heart Parish hosted an event to raise money for a redecoration fund. Entitled "The West End comes to Battersea" the concert included six of the stars of musicals across the west end who joined with an array of young talent from the Salesian parishes in Battersea.
