Br Lukasc Wojcik SDB writes about the Friday Masses at Savio Salesian College Bootle

In Savio Salesian College we have already managed to forget about the Christmas break. The Chaplaincy team is trying to find a way through planning the new trips, running the after schools clubs, and preparing for St. John Bosco’s Feast, which hopefully will be an absolutely great celebration. Apart from all of that, a lot is still going on and on we want to share with you our great experience.

Every Friday, during lunch break, we meet in our school Chapel for Holy Mass. In the beginning of the break students gather to be with God and meet one another. It is remarkable when among all the school noises one can experience silent prayer or communal singing, staff together with the pupils.

Hazel Fort, of the Savio Salesian College Chaplaincy Team in Bootle, reflects on a caring Advent. Above - the students Nativity play for pensioners.

After the fresh start in September, it seemed that we were just getting into the swing of things when Advent sneaked up on us and gave us a tremendous push into the hectic waters of Christmas preparation. It was sink or swim as we tried to juggle school exams with Advent and the hurly burly of Christmas.

Television adverts pushed impossible presents at impossible prices and cookery programmes told us of the exotic recipes we could prepare for our amazed guests at the parties we would be holding - if you were that way inclined and had begun ingredient shopping last August …

… and just the tiniest amount of time was allotted to the homeless or those alone at Christmas. Here, at Savio, those people have always been our priority.

The RE Department at St John Bosco College, (SJBC) Battersea, told us about a very special visit they had last week.


Ruth Jampel from 'Judaism for School' visited SJBC on Wednesday to help our Year 11 students really get to grips with some parts of the GCSE syllabus on Judaism. It was fun and interactive from the start. We had model Torah scrolls, cuddly toy Torah scrolls, mezuzahs, kippahs, you name it, we had it! The students really enjoyed being able to handle Jewish items.
