Don Bosco’s beloved mother, Mamma Margaret was the first Cooperator of Don Bosco. She saw clearly and understood every bit of the unsounded hardships in the life of St. John Bosco. After the example of her, on every 25th Nov of every year, the Salesians organize a beautiful day of get together with the Parents of the Salesians to appreciate their sacrifices and offering done to God, by offering their son to the Salesian way of life.
The Salesian Vocation is not only a property of the Salesians; rather it is a gift to others, in particular to their own family where they come from. So it is said, Priesthood (even Salesian Brotherhood) is the greatest gift that God gives to a family.
