On 18 May 2018 the Military Secretariat announced the appointment of Fr Michael Fava QHC, priest of the Diocese of Portsmouth, to be the next Deputy Chaplain-General to Her Majesty’s Land Forces Army from November 2018. The role, in direct support of the Chaplain-General, is effectively that of Head of Army Chaplaincy Personnel, in the rank of Brigadier (or ‘one star’). This selection is the first time that a Catholic Chaplain has reached such an appointment in any of the three Services.

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.

Last week the Savio House team ran a day retreat for 69 pupils from Alderley Edge School for Girls. The team were blessed to be able to run their activities in the rare British sunshine - and Alderley Edge brought along their drone to be able to capture the team and Savio in the sun.

 

What a great way to make sure everyone gets in the group photo!
