The parish is based in an ancient and humble district of Zgharta. Since the "Don Bosco Youth Society" started in 1998, the volunteers have shown that they want to follow the example of Don Bosco only: to seek the salvation of youth souls through education.
Today the oratory and the various youth associations that have emerged there accompany on a weekly basis the life of 63 children and young people through many activities, being home, church, playground and school for all.
This year, the feast of Don Bosco in Zgharta was even more heartfelt and popular than usual, as the entire citizenship joined in for the inauguration of the "Don Bosco Chapel" and the blessing of the "Don Bosco House".
The feast began at 10:30 local time, with the celebration of the Eucharistic liturgy, presided over by Msgr. Joseph Naffàa, auxiliary bishop of the eparchy of Joubbé, Sarba and Jounieh, who focused his sermon on holiness, to which the adolescents and young people are called, and consists in performing one's daily duty in small things well.
A procession followed the liturgy of the Eucharist, and was attended by the faithful of the parish, preceded by the youth associations "Don Bosco" and "S. Domenico Savio". The procession stopped in prayer before the "Don Bosco Chapel" and the "Don Bosco House".
Now the youth of Zgharta can pause in prayer, after playing, studying or working, in the "Don Bosco Chapel", in front of the image of the Saint of Youth.
