School Voice 2014

The 'School Voice' began again after a 'fallow' year last weekend (7-9 February). It saw the coming together of 4 Salesian Schools - Savio Salesian College Bootle, St. John Bosco Arts College Liverpool, Thornleigh Salesian College Bolton and Salesian College Farnborough.DSC 0498

The reason they come together as school councils is so that they can share their experience of their schools and to get a sense of what it means to belong to the wider Salesian family. The atmosphere from the first few icebreakers was tremendous. The young people were mixing and it was difficult for an outsider like me to guess which school they had come with!

We listened to how each of the groups had progressed within their role as councillors within the school and how they had gone about attaining this achievement. We looked at the values of communication, respect, teamwork and trust in a fun and interactive way.

In the afternoon, (as predicted by Mr Moore), it rained!! - Just as we were setting off for a walk!

Salesian Prayer - ever ancient, ever new

Don Bosco is a Saint whose loyalty to the Pope and the Bishops of the Church is both well known and documented. The same virtue can be said about his Salesians today; some have been entrusted by the Pope with great responsibility in the Church.

Don Bosco told his Salesians to approach the celebration of the Mass in a worthy manner, attentive to the celebration itself, and always with a great spirit of devotion to the Lord and for the gifts of his Church. Yet, his approach to prayer, especially with the young, was ever creative in its style. Don Bosco wanted to appeal not only to the mind of a young person, but by a variety of means, such as various types of music, the use of drama and through expressive artwork, to speak also to the senses and fundamentally to touch the heart of every young person. In this way Don Bosco wanted to speak to the whole person about God, the Heavenly Father who had such a special love for the young.
