When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.” –John 21:15-17–
The Don Bosco Center is, above all, a Christian organization and an outreach ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lexington, Ky. As such, we recognize as one of our highest callings to care for people, especially families. Below are some of the programs we use to do that.
The Academic Enrichment Program
Education is one of the most important aspects of a young person’s life. The quality of one’s education can have a lifelong impact on everything from career, relationships, and even self-worth. For that reason, the Don Bosco Center’s Academic Enrichment Program seeks to help young people meet their full academic potential, knowing how important this investment is in the life of a family. We fully believe that increasing academic potential can advance young people towards embracing their beloved identity, engaging in community, and strengthening their own family unit. We seek to empower the young people of this community and help them to develop the tools they need to become the men and women they were meant to be.
