May, the month in which the Earth springs into bloom and we start thinking about planting gardens, family picnics and making holiday plans. It’s also the Month of Mary and a busy month in the Salesian calendar. We have a Novena to Mary Help of Christians, books and piety items to honour the Holy Mother.
