Don Bosco Salesian Portal is the website of St. John Bosco’s Salesian Family of the eastern United States and Canada. It is meant to be a “clearing house” for all things Salesian according to the “Oratory Criteria” of school, church, home, and playground and the “meeting hub” for all of us in the Family.  It is sponsored by the Salesian Family Provincial Council of St. Philip the Apostle and St. Joseph Provinces. Please see our “About” page for information regarding use of the Portal.  Enjoy!

PILGRIMAGE 2022 TO ITALY IS ON!

EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS ON JANUARY 24, 2022

Graphs from the Italian government (as of January 1, 2022) show that COVID levels decrease consistently through the spring and are at only nominal levels of occurrence during the summer. Our pilgrimage’s being in June and July means it is happening at the best time of the year possible. We proceed with trust in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. If Prudence dictate otherwise, we will postpone and not cancel.

Words from Mr. Bret Thoman, 3rd Order Franciscan and Founder of Franciscan Pilgrimages, who is from the US and resides now in Italy with his family: “It seems that the summer and fall are the periods to travel, when the pandemic is mild, then it picks up by late fall and winter, subsides by spring, and everything relaxes in the summer. I’m pretty sure you won’t have any forced cancellations in the summer.”
