On Saturday, 17th of August the members of the Salesian Family based in Melbourne gathered at Salesian College, Chadstone to celebrate Don Bosco’s 204th birthday. The evening begun in a way that Don Bosco surely would approve of – with a mass celebrated by provincial Fr Will Matthews.

The back end of 2019 will see a variety of Salesian events occuring around Melbourne. A joint effort between the Salesian Family, Salesian Missions and Salesian Youth Ministry teams, all are encouraged to come to the events that suit them - the more the merrier!

Every now and then, the Provincial Council meets in a different Salesian community setting. This provides opportunity for the Councillors to gain a more personal appreciation of the house and the ministries that go on there, as well as enabling the “locals” to interact with the council on their own turf.
