FMAFirstMissionaryExpedition

 

140 years ago this week, the first Salesian Sisters' missionary expedition set out from the port of Genoa, Italy. Here's how the Sisters marked the occasion in Genoa.

 

On November 14, 2017, the provincial community and the directors of the Province of “ Madonna del Buon Consiglio” of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA) met before the ancient port of Genoa on a barge near the famous Aquarium to commemorate a historical date: November 14, 1877, the day that led the FMA beyond the borders of Europe, transposing the charism of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello to the Americas.

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.

Volunteers arrived early for a final period of preparation to make sure everyone and everything was well and truly ready for a successful and hectic week. At an evening gathering, the team met some of the young people who would be attending, along with their families, and were delighted that Provost Cameron, councillor for Paisley South West. and the Provost of Renfrewshire, came along to show her support for the project.

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
