Lent....
Lord, help us to be generous in our giving. May we give without expecting anything in return. May we give without counting the cost. May we give until it hurts a little.
Amen

WELCOME TO ST JOHN BOSCO ARTS COLLEGE

I would like to offer you a personal welcome to the St John Bosco Arts College site.
