Follow in the footsteps of Don Bosco
Brought up in poverty by his hardworking mother after the death of his father, Don Bosco became a priest and accomplished speaker, working tirelessly to help poor, homeless youth. He was a pioneer in educating children, rejecting corporal punishment in favor of frequent confession and Communion. Through catechetical training, he helped to unite the spiritual lives of youths in their study, work and play.
Spirituality for everyday living
Recognized as the patron saint of young apprentices, Don Bosco encouraged his young followers to learn a trade, thus, trailblazing the way for modern ideas in the area of vocational training. To retain the services of young priests, he began training his own helpers, bonding them informally under the patronage of Saint Francis de Sales. In 1859 he founded the Salesian order, which quickly spread throughout Italy. Members of this order still work in the missions and in the education of youth.
Enjoy your time with Don Bosco and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of all time.
