Our founder, Don Bosco, had a passinate devotion to Mary Help of Christians, so she is very special to us, the Salesian Family, and her feast on 24th May is celebrated by all of our parishes, schools and communities. Here, Cristiana Ferrauti tells us how her parish in Battersea marked the occasion this year.

 

“She has done everything” Don Bosco used to say, referring to the support and the miracles throughout all his life. From the dream at the age of nine, to the foundation of the Salesians in Turin, everything came from Mary.
