“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.” ― Sylvia Plath, Journal entry from August 1952. We may be nearing the end of summer, but August is also a month of festivals, carnivals and celebrations as well as the long-awaited summer holidays for those at schools and colleges. Make the most of the last month of summer and take a look at our books.

Don Bosco Prayer Card


A small prayer card depicting St John Bosco

Portrait 75mm x 105mm

The prayer on the reverse reads:

Saint John Bosco

Friend of the young,

teacher in the ways of God,

your dedication to empowering the needy inspires us still.

Help me to work for a better world,

where the young are given the chance to flourish,

where the poor's dream for justice can come true, and where God's compassion is shown to be real.

Intercede for me as I bring my needs to you

and to our Heavenly Mother, the Help of Christians.

Saint John Bosco, Pray for us!
