Christmas Tree Lighting

To make this beautiful event meaningful on Friday, 15 December 2023 at 6:00pm in the parish Church, I would ask you to bring, if you are able, a battery operated candle for your own personal use.
Then I’m asking, if you like, to bring an ornament to be blessed so that on your return home you may place this blessed ornament on your special Christmas tree.
As you enter the Church, I am also asking, on the night of the Christmas Tree Lighting, if you would bring your own lip-smacking yummy specially baked [label if it contains: nut products, soy or gluten] or store bought cookies for our “little angels”.
The purpose of this favor is so that the children and those young at heart can enjoy these delicious scrumptious cookies after the Christmas event at the entrance of the church. We will then move from the Church to the cafeteria for more fun to come & more surprises to tantalize.

Thanksgiving Day Mass

Thanksgiving Day is an occasion for us to give thanks to God the Father for all the blessings we have received in Jesus Christ through the work and graces of Holy Spirit.

The Saint John Bosco family will gather for the Celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist on 23 November 2023 at 8:45am.

Loaves of bread, to complement your holiday table, will be blessed during Mass and distributed to each family following Mass. All are welcome.

Thanksgiving Prayer Service

It is that time once again when we gather around our tables for Thanksgiving. The Parish Family of Saint John Bosco cordially invites you to a Thanksgiving Prayer Service on Tuesday, 21 November 2023 at 6:30pm in the parish Church.
As you leave Church following the Prayer Service, we invite the children to stop by the Main Lobby and pick up a fun Thanksgiving Gift! We hope you can join us as we gather to give thanks to God for our many blessings.

Eucharistic Revival

The Parish-focused second year of the Eucharistic Revival officially began on June 11th. During this year of the Eucharistic Revival, one of our goals at Saint John Bosco is to promote and encourage increasing Eucharistic Devotion. You are invited to join us for a Holy Hour at 10am in the Adoration Chapel on 6 December 2023. Treat yourself to some quiet time in prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. The Holy Hour provides each person an opportunity to bring before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament the cares, concerns, joys, sorrows and thanksgivings that we all experience each day. Come join us as we pray together, as the Apostles did, in the presence of Jesus. Come as a family or as an individual! All are most welcome.

Becoming a Catholic Christian

Are you someone or know someone who has expressed an interest in becoming a Catholic Christian? Do you know of a child over the age 7 who has not been baptized, or baptized Catholic but not confirmed and/or receiving Holy Community ? We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist during the Easter season. There are separate sessions for children, youth and adults. You are welcome to participate with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting. For information please contact the Faith Formation Office, (267) 803-0774.
