Don Bosco Bicentenary

The Salesians celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Don Bosco in 2015.

As part of the preparations for this celebration there have been many events happening in the UK. In 2013 the relics of Don Bosco visited the UK. A large number of parishioners from Our Lady of Lourdes travelled to Cardiff to visit the relics, enjoy the pilgrim experience and take part in the mass.

We have also recently had the ‘Encounter with Don Bosco’ experience come to our parish. The experience was enjoyed by over 150 people and included displays on the life and work of Don Bosco and Salesian spirituality.
