(ANS - Turin) - Every year, June 24 is a special day for all past pupils and friends of Don Bosco around the world because it celebrates the movement’s founding day. It was on this day in 1870 that the first group of past pupils from Valdocco, led by Carlo Gastini, visited Don Bosco to celebrate his name day - the feast day of St. John the Baptist - and to thank him for the love and education they had received. This moment of grace is marked by the values of gratitude and love that have always distinguished the movement of the Past Pupils.
