(Montreal, Que. – July 30) – The Salesian community of Montreal is busy this summer with over 400 young people participating in the nine-week summer program offered at the Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre. The staff of about 50 persons provides a lot of indoor and outdoor activities. One of the weekly favorites is the celebration of Mass every Friday at Mary Help of Christians Church, just a block away. The Mass ends with the singing of “Jesus Is My Superhero.”


Fr. Richard Authier joins the children in singing “Jesus Is My Superhero.”
