St Joseph Cafasso

St Joseph Cafasso

Date: 23rd June 2020

St Joseph Cafasso was known as "the Priest of the Gallows", for the comfort he gave to condemned prisoners. He advocated for better conditions in prisons, and his work with street children in Turin inspired Don Bosco, whom he supported in his vocation and in setting up the first Salesian foundations.

He was a respected teacher and became the spiritual director and friend of our founder.
