(East Boston – January 31) – To help celebrate the feast of St. John Bosco, Fr. John Nazzaro, director of Salesian Mission at Salesian Boys & Girls Club of East Boston devised a handmade Salesian Jeopardy game. The feastday competition was anticipated by a month of daily activities, videos, question-and-answer sessions with various informational postings in the building along with staff accompaniment. The January celebratory calendar was posted throughout the building for all parents and visitors to see. With the help of the Salesians and Salesian B&G Club staff, more than 350 young people are learning about Don Bosco and how they can incorporate his charism into their own daily lives.
