From youth groups:
Strange but interesting
The body thing was weird but the team were great and helpful
It was actually quite cool that a person from so long ago wanted people to have fun and enjoy their lives as young people.
It was interesting to see the person we had learnt so much about in school
This was a totally unusual experience. I liked the spinning plates and the tricks from the crew.
It has been quite an experience finding out about Don Bosco and the way he made cheerfulness a holy thing.
What would I ask if I met Don Bosco? I'd ask Don Bosco if he likes roses and then if he would like to come and play with my games.

The most moving thing for me was the simplicity of the words on the pilgrim experience. They revealed something of Don Bosco but more about where I am on the bigger journey of life. It was very helpful!

The energy and singing of the team was a great moment at the end of the mass and the way that the congregation all clapped Don Bosco as he left the Cathedral was quite emotional for me.

I loved the way that hundreds of young people gathered and waited with great patience around Don Bosco before saying a prayer with him. It was good to see that church can still hold young people and give them a good experience.

It was brilliant to see the relic crew working so well with young people. They were telling stories, doing tricks and talking about Don Bosco. The cathedral was filled with the cheerful noise of young people. Long may it last.
