Salesian family celebrates 75th anniversary of canonization of St. John Bosco

.- The Salesian family is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the canonization of St. John Bosco in Madrid today with a series of activities, including the launching of new online resources.

On April 1, 1934, 46 years after his death, Pope Pius XI canonized John Bosco and established January 31 as his feast day.

According to a press release published by the Salesian News Agency, the Salesian Family throughout the world will commemorate the anniversary, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Salesians by Don Bosco. “And it does so with the invitation of Father Pascual Chavez, superior of the Salesians, to ‘live 2009 as a year of grace, remembering where we came from, who we are and where we are going.’”

As part of the jubilee, the relics of Don Bosco will travel to each region where the congregation has a presence. The urn will be taken to various countries through 2015, when the Salesians will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of their founder.
