After a busy month of January for Madison Catholic Youth with a rEVOLution of Love event, the March for Life Pilgrimage and Frassati Fest all in a row, we did not pay fitting tribute to the Patron of the Young – St. John Bosco.
| Sidebar: Due to the busy events of this past month, this dear blog has been a bit neglected. However, the facebook and twitter were rockin’ during all of those events. Please follow along on those social media sites to see what great things happened during those events. And one of these days, we’ll see some further reflection on said events.|
Back to St. John Bosco, patron of the young and the poor. This very blog also neglected to honor his feast day on January 31st. Despite the lack of blogging gratitude, we would remiss to not mention how grateful we are for his intercession upon the youth of the Church and the Diocese.
In honor of his feast day, we are holding this year’s St. John Bosco Youth Formation + Ministry Planning Day this Monday! (Hopefully this isn’t the first you have heard about it — it’s been in the last two e-mail updates from Lindsay.) Details are as follows –
Bishop O’Connor Center
8:45am – Gathering
9:00am – Planning Session 1
11:00am – Spiritual Reflection + Prayer

If you are coming and have not had a chance to RSVP, go ahead and leave a comment here. We’ll gladly take you without having done so, but this will just help in planning.
For those who are not going to be able to make it on this day, stay tuned right here on the blog where there will be interactive features throughout the day + summaries posted, so you can participate from afar!
