January 31 marked the Feast Day of St. John Bosco and as is its custom, Don Bosco Prep celebrated the day with a solemn Mass. This year, Don Bosco welcomed Bishop Manny Cruz, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Newark, to celebrate the Mass in front of the entire student body, faculty, staff, as well as alumni and family in Immaculata Hall Gymnasium.
Students came to school in formal dress to show respect they hold for St. John Bosco. Don Bosco’s Music Ministry played beautifully as alway and the Youth Ministry helped organize the event.
Don Bosco Prep surrounds the Feast of St. John Bosco with its Spirit Week, a week filled with fun and activities. St. John Bosco intended all his schools to be not only to be places of learning, but also playgrounds, places for worship, and a home for his student. Don Bosco Prep honors his wishes every day, but especially so during Spirit Week. For Don Bosco Prep students, Spirit Week is one of the most highly anticipated weeks of the year!
