Don Bosco Task Force


Did you know?

St. John Bosco, the joyful Italian priest who lived from 1815-1888, is the patron of our Task Force for the Education of Youth.

Did you miss the explanation of the Don Bosco Task Force in the bulletin? “Our mission is to encourage the youth within our parish and community to pursue a life of discipleship through Catholic education, family faith formation and youth activities as a way of calling the rising generation to holiness and offering a deep formation in Catholic life. The works of the Don Bosco Task Force include funding parish youth programing aimed at fostering friendship among youth, the distribution of scholarships for Catholic schools (K-12) and providing opportunities for families to serve and grow together. Our single greatest fundraising effort is the annual series of Lenten Fish Dinners at Holy Cross.” Mark your calendars for the first Fish Fry on Friday, March 8. Revenue from these Friday Lenten suppers helps strengthen the faith of our young people throughout the year! There will be more opportunities to come to know about the life and legacy of Don Bosco and how you can help support the work of the Task Force for the Education of Youth. Keep the young people of our parish in prayer, especially those preparing to receive First Holy Communion and Confirmation. If you have ideas or want to help, please e-mail the group at The next event to look forward to is a youth night (grades 8-12) on Saturday evening, March 2 after the 4:30 pm evening Mass at Holy Cross. Don’t miss this great way to launch into Lent which starts just a few days later!
