Salesian Mission Days 2018 - Thailand

Written by

SMDThailand3 500


Internal migration is a major feature in Thailand, as industrialistation increases and people move into the cities, where they have to adapt to a hectic lifestyle, away from their close-knit rural families. The country has the second-largest economy in Southeast Asia, and is one of the most developed countries in the region. The capital, Bangkok, has grown rapidly to a population of 10 million, and a further 2 million people travel in and out of the city each day to work.


The Salesians are present in this bustling city, working with the young in the spirit of Don Bosco, and this week's Salesian Mission Day film focuses on the professional training they offer to enable young people who are deaf or blind to live independent lives so they can achieve a better future and participate as fully as possible in society.

Ken Greaney extends an invitation to a special Salesian Family gathering in Chertsey


On May 20th the Chertsey Cooperators are hosting their annual Day of Celebration in honour of Mary Help of Christians. The event is aimed at Salesian Cooperators in the south of the country, together with any other folk in the wider Salesian Family for whom the venue is within striking distance.


SrConnie25th 1


On 6th April, our Salesian family and friends gathered in Paisley to celebrate the silver jubilee of Sr Connie Cameron FMA, Provincial of the Salesian Sisters GBR. It was a wonderful celebration to give thanks for Connie and for her joyful witness to FMA life over the last 25 years!


We'll have a full report soon.



We are happy to report the successful launch of Savio 100, the fundraising scheme at Savio House which we announced here in early February. Over 40 people have comitted to donate £100 per year, some even more, and we anticipate raising £6000 in this our first year. While donors are spread across the Province, 70% are based in the Parish of St Gregory's, Bollington, where Fr Martin was invited to make an appeal on the weekend we celebrated Don Bosco's Feast and received such a generous response.

Savio House is running a work week in order to assist the community with the upkeep of the grounds and accommodation. Tasks will not require any special skill but rather physical ability, stamina and the willingness to work hard; for example: painting, gardening and grounds maintenance. These valuable tasks will be varied and help Savio House to be ready for the young people in the coming year.

We hope you will be able to join us for this experience when we will work hard each day and have the opportunity for community prayer and social time together in the evenings. We are looking for an expression of interest at this time and those we choose to volunteer will be required to complete a more detailed form.

Volunteers must be over 18 and will be required to take part in a health and safety induction on arrival.

Please return your completed form by 31st May 2013 to Fr Martin Coyle SDB by email at

Salesian Mission Days 2018 - India

Written by

This week, our Salesian Mission Day looks at India, where in less than a decade, the average age is set to be 29. The Salesians in India strongly feel that this is an opportunity to equip the nation for the future by forming young people in the vocational skills they need to succeed in a highly technical jobs market, and in Salesian style, integrating this with social, moral and leadership development through cultural activities, sports, and education in ethics and values.

Fr Andrew Ebrahim SDB describes some of the Holy Week activities at St John Bosco College (SJBC), Battersea.


We had two Lenten reflections at SJBC, one on the evening of Thursday 22nd March where parents, governors and other guests were invited to an evening of readings and music for Lent. Our students were joined by students from Salesian School, Chertsey and we had a variety of music to suit all tastes. It was an evening that led those present through the challenging moments of the life of Christ culminating in His death and resurrection.
