Tampa, United States - January 2023 - On the feast day of Don Bosco, January 31, the Salesian community of Tampa gathered to celebrate the Saint of Youth, reflecting on the Strenna 2023 of the Rector Major, Fr.

In this year's call to focus on collaboration between religious and laity, the Tampa Salesians reflected on the Salesian mission and asked how to "be leaven in today's human family." The festivities also included the annual "Don Bosco" festival, hosted by Mary Help of Christians Parish, during which numerous activities, carnival games, and group dances were organized. Also, on Jan. 31, the Salesian High School "Cristo Rey" hosted "Don Bosco Day," a celebration time consisting of games, obstacle courses, tournaments, and a spectacular talent show. Finally, at the Mary Help of Christians Center, the Don Bosco Gala was held, with a closing dinner, games, and dancing. The laity with the collaboration of the Salesians directed each event.
