The day the Bishop came



Hazel Fort from the Chaplaincy team at Savio Salesian College in Bootle, near Liverpool, writes about a very special day in the life of the school.

June 4 was a day of great excitement for Savio Salesian College: on this day, we received our bishop. I say ‘our bishop’ because Bishop Tom Williams is home grown, with his roots firmly established in St Antony’s parish.


He visited us to see how we were going on. Students were as eager to meet him as he was to meet them. He had words of encouragement for the staff, too.

Fr David O'Malley SDB, Schools Delegate for the Province, writes about a recent meeting of Headteachers


A small group of head teachers gathered in Battersea to explore ethos and spirituality in schools. The heads of Salesian schools do this regularly. Two Salesian heads, Alison Burrowes and Ged Owens met up with heads from five other Catholic schools to explore how a Salesian approach to spirituality might support them in building the Catholic ethos of their own schools. The gathering involved a lot of reflection on the challenge of maintaining ethos in the present educational climate, the need to maintain a strong sense of vocation in teachers and the benefits of using a charism to reinforce Catholic ethos in schools.
