Who are The Bosco Boys...

...and what do they have to do with Saint Mary School?

The Bosco Boys are Brother Steve DeMaio and Brother Steve Eguino who have been featured in Array of Hope concert events. Both are currently in formation studying towards becoming Catholic priests with the Salesians of Don Bosco. They peform Rap and Hip Hop songs of faith and have a YouTube channel. One of their videos is “Who Says You Can’t Be A Saint.”
 
A teacher shared this video with Principal Craig Palmer who immediately said “This is the perfect fit for our school.” A week later in the men’s group, This Man is You, at Saint Mary Parish, Mr. Palmer told the story, finishing with I’d love to do a video for our school. A member of the men's group knew Array Of Hope, the company who produced the video. An introduction was made at a local diner. Mr. Palmer brought them to Saint Mary School for a tour. Inspired by both the video and the students, the men discussed several ideas.
 
A plan was put in place. Mr. Palmer and his staff prepared several scenarios that included every grade in the school and showcased all the features that make Saint Mary School great. Array of Hope spent the day video-taping the entire school. They were thrilled that not only did the students know the song, but that the band had learned to play it as well. Throughout filming Array of Hope sent The Bosco Boys video clips. The Bosco Boys were so excited they decided to do an endorsement for the school… Who Says you can’t be a Saint!?
