Saint John Bosco was born in Italy on the 16th of August. He is very well known around the world as the “Father and Teacher of Youth”. His passion I teaching the youth led him to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and Mary. His life’s journey was not as pleasant as it seemed as he died on January 31, 1888 at the age of 72.
Even after the death of this holy man, his teachings and values were spread to the other youths. Don Bosco’s (or Father Bosco’s) followers continued teaching the youth for a better life. After few years of teaching and educating, other Don Bosco schools were built in honor of this holy man.
