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!

St John Bosco Arts: Race for Life 2018

SJJBARace4LifeGp

 

Students, staff and governors from St John Bosco Arts College weren't daunted by the heat and blazing sunshine as they completed their Race for Life on Monday 2nd July, in support of cancer research.

 

Over 40 of them followed a 5k course around the school site, in Croxteth, near Liverpool, in an event organised as part Cancer Research UK's Race for Life Schools Programme. Training and preparations began some time ago, and included a fundraising campaign and assemblies to raise awareness and encourage support, using materials provided by the charity.

 

In addition to the runners and walkers, the event was suported by staff and students acting as marshalls and water assistants in the scorching conditions on the day.

 

The school is very proud of its staff and students, and grateful to everyone who made the event possible: "What a fantastic way to raise money for Cancer Research and what a great team spirit!"

 

Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, and although more people are now surviving, there is so much more to be done to find new treatments and put an end to this disease. The efforts of the SJBA Race for Life Team are an inportant contribution to this.

 

If you would like to make a donation and support the St John Bosco 5k team, their JustGiving page will remain open for a while longer. 

 

Below: the first staff and student finishers.

Kendal Young People are Taking the Lead!

KendalYouth 2


During February half term, Mary and Iain Biddle took three young people for a wonderful stay with the Salesian Sisters at the Blundellsands community. This group of committed young people regularly attend the youth group "Create Space" in Kendal, which was born out of the Salesian Spirituality Team.

 

KendalYouth 1


During the stay, Mary and Iain delivered the VIDES Youth Leadership Course, encouraging the young people to think about their own gifts and talents while focusing on their future leadership potential. The theme for the stay was "You are young, you are precious, you are loved." They took time to look at the lives of St. John Bosco and St. Mary Mazzarello, as well as discussing and reflecting on the Salesian way of working with young people.
