Elementary:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today we remember St. John Bosco. When John was nine years old, Jesus appeared to him in a powerful dream that led John to devote his life to teaching people of Jesus' message of peace and friendship. He dedicated his life to teaching children about faith and is the patron saint of boys as he spent much of his life working and educating boys.

St. John Bosco created community and family though kindness as all Christians are asked to do. Ask yourself 'How can I help someone today?'

Jesus says he came to bring good news to the poor (Luke 4:18).

As Christians working together, we are called to be the good news of hope for the poor,

Let us pray:

God by your Holy Spirit help us to live

in peace and unity with our neighbours,

and may we all work together with your Son Jesus

in bringing your freedom, peace and hope to all.

We pray in his name. Amen.

St. John Bosco pray for us and all Christians today as we take our place in our schools and world. We ask this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.​


High School: 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today marks the Memorial of St. John Bosco.

When John was nine years old, Jesus appeared to him in a powerful dream that led John to devote his life to teaching people of Jesus' message of peace and friendship.

John Bosco dedicated his life to teaching children about faith. He is the patron saint of boys as he spent much of his life working and educating boys. He died in 1888, at the age of seventy-two and his work lives on with the Salesian Order he founded.

St. John Bosco created the Salesian communities though kindness and all Christians are asked to build our communities through small acts of kindness. The question that we need to be asking is: 'How can I help someone today?'

Jesus says he came to bring good news to the poor (Luke 4:18).

We live in a world where there is war, starvation, exploitation and injustice.

The gap between the rich and the poor is getting wider.

As Christians, we are called to be good news for the poor,

working in solidarity to restore justice for all.

Let us pray:

Almighty God, by your Holy Spirit of communion,

help us to live in solidarity with our neighbours,

and so work together with your Son Jesus

in fulfilling your promise of freedom from poverty and oppression.

We pray in his name. Amen.

St. John Bosco pray for us and all Christians today as we take our place in our schools and world. We ask this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
