Our founder, Don Bosco, had a passinate devotion to Mary Help of Christians, so she is very special to us, the Salesian Family, and her feast on 24th May is celebrated by all of our parishes, schools and communities. Here, Cristiana Ferrauti tells us how her parish in Battersea marked the occasion this year.


“She has done everything” Don Bosco used to say, referring to the support and the miracles throughout all his life. From the dream at the age of nine, to the foundation of the Salesians in Turin, everything came from Mary.

As the Salesian Family celebrates the great feast of Mary Help of Christians, the President of the World Confederation of Past Pupils of Don Bosco sends this greeting: 




Dear Past Pupils and friends of Don Bosco.

I would like to wish you the blessed feast of Mary Help of Christians.

Today the whole Salesian family celebrates the feast of our patron.

Don Bosco chose Mary Help of Christians as a patron and guard for his

work and his boys. He chose her as a patron also for us.


I encourage You to live Don Bosco´s words also today: Trust to Mary

and You will see the miracles. I believe there are many miracles

prepared for Salesian family.


We have only to trust.
