As part of a worldwide pilgrimage, a major relic of St John Bosco is coming to Ireland from 23 February to 7 March 2013 visiting twelve locations including Crumlin, Sean McDermott St (Dublin), Celbridge, Ballinakill, Portlaoise, Fernbank, Milford (Castletroy), Southill and Pallaskenry in Limerick, Knock, Navan, and St Peter’s Cathedral in Belfast. The visit is part of the preparations for the 200th anniversary in 2015 of Don Bosco’s birth. St John Bosco founded a worldwide movement for young people and two religious congregations. In Ireland, the Salesians and the Salesian Sisters (Daughters of Mary Help of Christians) have 27 centres for educating and working with youth.
