Marian Camp

Last May 25-26, 2019 the Shrine of Mary Help of Christians, Boroko East, conducted the Marian Camp for the youth group ‘300 youth for Mary’ under the leadership of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (Salesian sisters). Through group dynamics, fun games and inputs the 538 participants from parishes, Catholic schools and tertiary institutions were challenged to be servant-leaders among their fellow youth. The high point was the Taize prayer experience with the possibility to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. The concuding Eucharist was celebrated by the Apostolic Nuntio, Archbishop Kurian Matthew Vayalunkal, who challenged the participants to imitate Mary’s virtues.

Don Bosco

Don Bosco was creative, enthusiastic and enterprising in his work. He wrote and edited booklets, school texts, histories, digests, magazines, fliers, plays. From his earliest years as a priest, Don Bosco communicated through his whole demeanour and person, through games, talking, visiting, preaching, and publishing. Communicating through the internet and publishing is a priority for Salesians. Inspired by this example of Don Bosco and the early Salesians, Social Communication continues an important priority.
