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.

On January 31st, the Feast of Saint John Bosco, Salesian College Farnborough commemorated the 25th Anniversary one of our former pupils who was inspired by our founder to live out his Salesian ideals to the full.

HCTPFarnboroRehearsal

Fr Pat Sherlock updates us on preparations for music at the HCPT (Hosanna House & Children’s Pilgrimage Trust) liturgies at Lourdes this Easter.

 
On Saturday 3rd February there was a rehearsal, led by HCPT Pilgrimage Director Andy Clare, at Salesian College Farnborough. The HCPT liturgies this Easter are being led by the American Special Children's Pilgrimage Group, but as they can bring only a limited number of singers from the USA, reinforcements are being provided by students from the UK.

Fr Pat Sherlock SDB reports on a valuable new initiative from students of Salesian College Farnborough. 


On 7th February, members of the Salesian Community in Farnborough attended a practical session on Social Media organised by a group of Year 12 students in the College.

 

Last year, the students received a grant from Caritas Portsmouth and the Catenians to develop a project to coach older people in the use of computers, mobile phones and similar devices. The project arose from the Diocesan 'Dragons Den' competition some of the sixth-formers entered that year. They hope to extend this to local parishioners and the grandparents of current students, but they began with a pilot group of SDBs.
