Looking back at Flame 2017

Flame2017Page 500

 

In the Summer issue of Don Bosco Today, the UK's Salesian Bulletin, we look back at the amazing Flame 2017 gathering of young Catholics. Our Province is a major supporter of Flame, and the hundreds of young people from Salesian schools and projects attended with their teachers, chaplains, youth leaders, Salesian Sisters and SDBs. 

 

A Catholic youth gathering and a Salesian cardinal both trending on Twitter on the same day. Who’d have thought? Well, to those of us at the SSE Arena at Wembley on Saturday 11th March for Flame 2017, it wasn’t much of a surprise.

The week invites students to think about different issues affecting the world

 

St John Bosco Arts College Croxteth, near Liverpool, took the refugee crisis as its Mission Week theme to raise awareness of this vital issue. Figures from the UN Refugee Agency show an unprecedented 65.6 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. Text and pictures: Hannah Fowler, The Foundry Agency

 

Mission Week at St John Bosco Arts celebrates the school’s Christian ethos and invites students to think about different issues affecting the world and its local community.

WinnerWkExp

 

In keeping with Don Bosco’s vision, our communities are closely involved in the lives of their associated Salesian schools. In Bolton this week, we added ‘workplace’ to the Salesian window of home, school, playground and church, when Don Bosco Publications and Salesian Link hosted Winner, a Year 10 student from Thornleigh Salesian College, for her work experience placement.

 

During the week, Winner learned about the work of our small publishing house, dealing with deliveries of our latest publication, preparing orders for despatch, and working on the essential tasks of editing and proof-reading.

MaryHelpPastPupils

 

As the Salesian Family celebrates the great feast of Mary Help of Christians, the President of the World Confederation of Past Pupils of Don Bosco sends this greeting: 

 

WorldConfedPastPupils

 

Dear Past Pupils and friends of Don Bosco.


I would like to wish you the blessed feast of Mary Help of Christians.

Today the whole Salesian family celebrates the feast of our patron.

Don Bosco chose Mary Help of Christians as a patron and guard for his

work and his boys. He chose her as a patron also for us.

 

I encourage You to live Don Bosco´s words also today: Trust to Mary

and You will see the miracles. I believe there are many miracles

prepared for Salesian family.

 

We have only to trust.

One of the hymns in full swing (Fr Charles centre)

Fr Pat Sherlock SDB, Chaplain at Salesian College Farnborough, describes their recent Lourdes Mass, at which the principal celebrant was a recently-ordained former pupil, Fr Charles Randall CSsR.

While our athletics team was competing in the inter-Salesian sports, superbly hosted by Chertsey on Friday 12th May, the College was celebrating a lively Mass which brought something of the spirit of the HCPT pilgrimage to those who were not able to be there this year.

PortsDiocDragonsDen

 

A team of sixth formers from Salesian College Farnborough travelled to Basingstoke on 30th March 2017 to take part in a “Dragons’ Den” style competition organised by Caritas and the Schools Office in the Diocese of Portsmouth.


All Catholic Primary and Secondary Schools in the Diocese were invited to design a project which would help the local community by putting into practice the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy. Three primary schools and three secondary schools prepared bids and presented them to the ‘Dragons’, who were in fact very supportive and un-scary, in the modern church hall of St Bede’s parish in Basingstoke.
