Salesian Clan Gathers in Scotland

SalesianFamilyEasterhouse1

 

On Sunday 5th February, 52 members of the Salesian Family gathered at St. Benedict's, Easterhouse to celebrate the feast of St. John Bosco. We were blessed with the presence of Fr. Michael Winstanley, Fr. Bob Coupe and Fr. Joe Brown who joined us from the Bolton community to concelebrate the Mass. Also with us were 5 Salesian sisters based here in Glasgow.

The largest group of the Salesian family were the 26 Cooperators, who helped to make the day the best yet. We also had 18 Shrigley Old Boys, who when added to the rest of the family guaranteed a wonderful party of song and laughter, roll on next year.

After Mass, there was an extensive buffet provided. We were then entertained in song by a “DON BOSCO RAPPER” - from East Kilbride. She was brilliant. Don Bosco would have been proud.

The socialising really started in earnest, enabling us to mingle and swap stories with the Salesians and co-operators and recall many happy memories.

With Paddy O'Neil up from London we were updated with news from England and the date of the next Shrigley Old Boys week-end Fri/Sat/Sun the 8, 9, 10th. September


SHRIGLEY OLD BOYS PRESENT.

Greig Bell; John Clark; Michael Crossan; Terry and Sheana Devine; Joe and Tricia Doogan; Felix Gilfedder; Brenden and Rosemary Gill; Vincent Gill; Jim Hughes; Bill McEleny; Vincent Mochan; David Murphy; Paddy O'Neil; John Meehan; Tony Quinn.

Feast of Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa

Alexandrina Maria da Costa 4

 

On 13th October, we remember Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa, a Salesian Cooperator and mystic who lived in tremendous pain for over thirty years, finding happiness in her suffering, and managing to care about the troubles of others despite her own situation. At the age of 14, she severly injured her spine jumping from a window to escape from an attempted rape, and by the age of 21, she was totally paralysed. After praying for a cure at first, she came to see her vocation as a 'victim soul', and received the grace to bear her suffering, offering it 'for the salvation of the young' and for peace in the world.
