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.

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.

Youth and hope at SYLC California

Written by

SYLC USA 2017

 

Salesian Youth Ministry volunteers David, Anya and Sarah are in the USA, about to begin work at Camp St Francis, a Salesian children's camp located on the Californian coast. David and Anya arrived in time for part of the Salesian Youth Leadership Conference (SYLC). David sent some thoughts on the experience so far, and will keep us updated as their summer mission continues.


Get up, get out, do good! This was the message that the Holy Father, Pope Francis left for our young people last summer during World Youth Day, in Krakow. This was also the theme for the Salesian Youth Leadership Conference this past week.


Anya and myself were lucky enough to join the conclusion of this week, as part of our summer mission in the American Western coast province. With Camp St Francis not starting for another few days yet, being able to reflect on the time we have spent here already is incredible.
