September 11, 2022

Good morning,

Today we had the opportunity to express our love and gratitude by honoring the importance of grandparents and the vital role they play in our families. Thank you to all who came and celebrated Grandparent’s Day with us.


We also have an exciting week ahead at St. John Bosco High School. Of the many traditions we celebrate, the Triduum is an opportunity for us as a community to come together through reflection, reconciliation, and celebration. Although the school year started several weeks ago, Triduum Week is a time for us to officially share the Strenna or our guiding theme for the year. 


“Sharing our gifts. Transforming our world.” As the Strenna will be presented to our community this week it is a great reminder of what centers us as a Salesian community. Specific activities will be held this week that include a Faith Family reflection activity, opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, a communal celebration of the Eucharist, and we will conclude the week with our Fall Sports Rally.


I hope you all have a blessed Sunday. Below you will find what is in store for the week ahead.



Kristopher L. Anderson, Ed.D., Class of ‘04
