Salesian Vocations 2010
This year we have 24 men in formation here at Don Bosco Residence. We have gone up every year for the past 3 years. We went from 13 men in 2007, 19 in 2008, 21 in 2009, to 24 men this year! God is good and has blessed our community! Please pray that He will continue to bless our men with fidelity to their vocations! For more information on Salesian Vocations please click here!
