Today the Don Bosco Prep community celebrated the Feast of our patron saint, John Bosco, in a mass celebrated by Joseph William Cardinal Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of theArchdiocese of Newark.
In Cardinal Tobin’s homily, he reflected on Don Bosco’s life and his oratory. “He befriended the boys who needed help,” he said. “And won them over with his patience and gentleness.”
After the intercessions, the students and faculty who are going on the Haiti and Puerto Rico mission trips over February break were commissioned by the Cardinal and then given missionary crosses.
After the Communion prayer, Cardinal Tobin, along with the concelebrating Salesians,visiting priests, and members of the Kelly family, bestowed a blessing on the newly completed Kelly Family Wellness Center. The Kelly Family Wellness Center is located in the former Immaculata Hall cafeteria. We thank Joseph Kelly ‘89 and family for their continued support of Don Bosco Prep!
