Second class relics are possessions that a saint owned, and third class relics are objects that have been touched to a first or second class relic or the saint has touched him or herself.Our relic of St John Bosco is a first class relic from the bones of the saint.

Remember you are dust…
Today we started the 40 days of the Lenten Season with the Catholic Tradition of Ash Wednesday. The Holy Father has enjoined all Christians and non-Christians to make Ash Wednesday as a day of prayer and fasting for our suffering Sisters and Brothers in Ukraine and World Peace. The ashes on our foreheads reminds us of our mortality … “Remember that you are dust, and unto dust you will return” and it is also a sign of our repentance of our sinfulness and the need for the love and mercy of God.
The Bosconian Alumni, Staff and JARC put their efforts together to concrete the sides of the stage as additional space for Training. The Alumni and staff prepared the area for cementing while JARC through the kindness of Mr. Benjo Labuca provided the concrete mix for the project. To God be the glory and our gratitude to all.
