Last week the Savio House team ran a day retreat for 69 pupils from Alderley Edge School for Girls. The team were blessed to be able to run their activities in the rare British sunshine - and Alderley Edge brought along their drone to be able to capture the team and Savio in the sun.

 

What a great way to make sure everyone gets in the group photo!

Last week a number of Salesian Animators and Volunteers met together for a relaxed evening at St James'. We started with evening prayers and a short reflection, which was then followed by the BBQ in the garden and nibbles in the community room.

 

The evening was a lot of fun, a great opportunity to catch up with everyone., and we plan to make this a regular event.

We are happy to report the successful launch of Savio 100, the fundraising scheme at Savio House which we announced here in early February. Over 40 people have comitted to donate £100 per year, some even more, and we anticipate raising £6000 in this our first year. While donors are spread across the Province, 70% are based in the Parish of St Gregory's, Bollington, where Fr Martin was invited to make an appeal on the weekend we celebrated Don Bosco's Feast and received such a generous response.

Dan Antonio of Salesian Youth Ministry GBR describes their recent weekend exploring the Strenna 2018.

 

Last weekend some of the Salesian Youth Ministry GBR animators met together with our young leaders from the RISE project to reflect and share on the theme of this year's Strenna. We looked at how in our roles we might strive to quench the young people's thirst for life and spirituality. This was linked together with the Gospel of John 4:1-42, the woman at the well especially the phrase "Sir, Give me this water". It was a blessed time to share with those who are just starting off in Salesian leadership, listening to their take on how to reach out to the young today.

It's an exciting time for Savio House, our lovely youth retreat centre in the Cheshire countryside. Following last week's launch of  the new Savio100 scheme to support their work with young people, Centre Manager Emma updates us on their new website and a special offer.

 

Savio House has just launched its new website,  www.saviohouse.org.uk, where you can find all the information you need about our work, visiting us and volunteering with us. To go along with this, we have also started a reduced rate for youth groups hiring the Barns. The price has been reduced to £35 per person for a 2-night stay during the week or weekend. Through this we hope to enable as many young people as possible to have an experience at Savio House.

Fr Martin Coyle, Rector of Savio House, our youth retreat centre in Bollington, Cheshire, writes about an exciting new scheme to support its valuable work with the young, and invites YOU to help by becoming one of the Savio 100!

 

The Feast of Don Bosco is always a special day in every Salesian House and this year at Savio House we were blessed to have 2 groups of young people overlapping on retreat.

 

It was also a special day because it saw the launch of Savio 100, a fundraising initiative which aims at gaining additional financial support for the Salesian Mission at Savio House. Despite a large annual subsidy from the Salesian Province, our rising costs mean that we need to look for other forms of support and funding to continue to provide the unique Savio retreat experience to young people at an affordable cost to them.
