Our Founder's Feast in Bootle

St James Mass2 500


Fr Jakub tells us about the recent festivities for Don Bosco at Savio Salesian and St James' Parish, Bootle

31st January is always a highlight in the Salesian Calendar. The Feast of St John Bosco. In Bootle we held a special School Celebration on that day. The day began with two Masses – one for the pupils of Y10 and Y11 and the other for the junior students. Pupils helped to animate the liturgy in many ways. The altar servers, readers and offertory procession all made the celebration very special. After the Mass students were presented with a special Salesian pin which had been blessed before. It will remind them of our Salesian charism and ethos.


The celebration continued throughout the day. All students were given out sweets, and the chaplaincy team was also invited for a meal to KFC and McDonalds.




On Sunday celebrations continued in the parish. At St James’ again we have celebrated the Mass of St John Bosco. Many young people gathered on that day. After the Mass, our altar servers were invited to the Bowling trip organised by our Youth Active Team. It was a lot of fun. Sadly, leaders were beaten by the servers again, just like last year. But we’re hoping to make a comeback in 2021. The game was followed by a meal – burgers, chips and chicken nuggets. We all had a very good time.


It’s great to celebrate, as it is one way of expressing our gratefulness for our founder.


St John Bosco, pray for us!
