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!

FarewellSavioTeam2016 17

 

This week, the 2016-17 retreat team at Savio House, Bollington, ended their busy year together. While some of the team will continue there, others are going on to other things. The Province is very grateful for the superb work the team does, providing retreats to hundreds of young people from all over the country. We wish them all safe journeys, and every success in future, and look forward to meeting Team 2017-18 soon! Here's what Savio House said:

 

These last few days have been bitter sweet here at Savio as we've been saying our final goodbyes to the retreat team. It's been an incredible year with so many memories both in community and on retreats. Once again thank you to all the schools that have helped make this year special!!!

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.
