Sr Ella FMA describes the joys of the recent Salesian Cooperators’ pilgrimage to Italy.


Every two years, Eamonn McDonald of the Cowley Co-operators, organises a Pilgrimage to Italy which always includes Valdocco and the places associated with Don Bosco. Sixteen “Pilgrims” set off from various parts of the U.K. We all met in Bologna Airport where our coach took us to Rimini where the Salesians have a holiday house facing the sea! Accommodation, food and weather were excellent. Our Sisters gave us a warm welcome at our house round the corner! On one day a guided tour of the ancient Republic of San Marino was included, a remarkable experience into another world and outstandingly beautiful!

Our Founder's Feast: Happy Don Bosco Day!

FeetOnEarthHeartInHeavenDB 500

Today, we celebrate and give thanks for our founder, St John Bosco. Seeing the problems faced by young people in nineteenth century Turin, their need to be loved, educated and respected, he created an educational approach to nurture them and enable them to thrive in the future.

Our novena this year took the form of reflections from Salesian Cooperators who are inspired by Don Bosco's example. Jessica Wilkinson, Provincial Coordinator for the Salesian Cooperators, offers some thoughts for the feast. Learn more about St John Bosco


God called many of us to follow His Son as Salesian Co-operators, "with each of us living out that call according to our personal circumstances in life." (Salesian Co-operators Daily Prayer) The reflections written by Salesian Co-operators over the last nine days leading up to the feast of our much loved founder have really illustrated that. I would like to thank each contributor and Salesian Link for making this happen.
