The celebration of today's special feast calls for beautiful spaces, and our Province is fortunate in having talented young Brothers who use their gifts in honour of Our Lady.


At Chertsey, Br Mateusz prepared the St Francis de Sales chapel at Salesian School to provide a lovely focus for prayer and contemplation, and in Bolton, Br Po Tak created a banner in the community dining room as a centrepiece for the festivities.

Friday May 18th 2018 saw another group from Salesian School Chertsey attend the second Diocesan Secondary School Pilgrimage to Arundel Cathedral. Nine pupils from years 8-10 were driven by minibus by Fr. Marco, Mrs. Morrison and Br. Mateusz.

After a remarkably stress-free drive for an hour and fifteen minutes, the group arrived at the designated car park where the schools were to congregate. Salesian School Chertsey was joined by about five other secondary schools from across the diocese of Arundel and Brighton.

Spirit of God ...

Come down upon us anew,

teach us unity.

Renew our hearts

and teach us to love as you love us,

to forgive as you forgive us.


Pope Francis



For the nine days leading up top her feast on 24th May, we traditionally pray a novena to Mary Help of Christians, who is close to the hearts of all of the Salesian Family. This year, as we mark the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Turin, the global novena is a series of videos on the theme of Don Bosco's dreams which feature Mary Help of Christians.


The theme was proposed by the Rector Major, and the videos include commentary and testimony from him and others in the Salesian Family. Watch the trailer, and follow the videos on the ANS YouTube channel








The latest in our Pocketbook series from Don Bosco Publications is a little book telling the story of St Mary Mazzarello, who fouded the Salesian Sisters with Don Bosco.


We celebrate her feast on 13th May, so it's just the right time to find out more about this inspiring woman.
