They Made Some Noise!

Make Some Noise, the 24-hour Salesian youth gather, continues to grow in popularity, with 300 young people from 13 schools and parishes attending this year.

 

On the evening of Friday 22nd September, groups of 14-16 year olds from all over the UK headed for Bolton, where Thornleigh Salesian College was again the host venue. After an opening reflection, the fun began with a ceilidh, with music from past pupils of Thornleigh, the Castlemore Ceili Band.

Good friends and good fruits at Confronto 2017

SYMUKConforto2017RM MG

 

Fr Roman Szczypa SDB was part of the group who travelled from the UK to Turin in August, for this year’s Confronto, the Salesian Youth Movement' European gathering. He tells us about the programme, and how impressed he was by the faithfulness of the young people attending. The photo above shows the group with the Rector Major and Mother General. 


‘We are like fruit trees. People come to us in search of good fruits. What a shock if they find none!’

Have you ever had the experience of spending time at a big international meeting? Perhaps yes, perhaps no! But I have actually had this experience. Therefore I would like to share with you, who are at this very moment reading this article, what I have personally experienced. This may be helpful and of interest to you and give you an understanding of what it was like to share in the unity and charism of such an event. This took place in August 2017 in Turin in Italy, at the very heart of where the Salesians were founded by St John Bosco, who was born, lived, worked and died there. Many people from all over the world have heard of this place, Colle Don Bosco, and many people have already visited it.

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.

Last Thursday, I spent a day with the first of the Phoenix Summer Camp groups, as they took a trip to the banks of the River Mersey, near Stockport, for a day of exciting outdoor activities.

 

At 10:30 on the dot, minibuses arrived at Burnage Rugby Club bringing Year 7 pupils from Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton; Our Lady's Catholic College, Lancaster; and St James' Catholic High School, Cheadle. Unfortunatley, at 10:35, the blazing sun hid and the rain came down, but the high spirits of the youngsters could not be dampened!

Br Greg Echegwo SDB tells us about this year's Rise Young Leaders' programme:

 

What a stunning and very elevating Rise Summer Camp of 2017 took place in Savio House between 24th to 28th of July!

 

They were six young people between the age of 14 to 17 that participated in this year phenomenal summer programme, planned to empower and inspire our young people to cultivate and foster the Salesian leadership skills. This thereby brings them closer to the Salesian family.

Easter Triduum 2017 at Savio House

PassoverMeal2017SavioUrSpace

The Easter retreat at Savio House began with a lively Passover meal, and then the youth and young adult groups attending worked to create a wonderfully prayerful atmosphere for the Easter services.

As the photos show, (thank you URSpace & Sr Gill for these!!), the weekend was a spiritually uplifting experience with plenty of fun too, in the Salesian tradition.
