Among the many victims were several young demonstrators who also died in the clashes; in their name the "International Day of the African Child" was born, a day celebrated every year to draw attention to the living conditions and rights of children and young people on the African continent.

  • 28th General Chapter: the same questions that pushed Don Bosco

    With the letter addressed to all the Salesians of the world, the Rector Major set off the journey towards the forthcoming 28th General Chapter (GC28), a chapter presenting two interesting novelties: the return to Valdocco, 62 years after the last one the Salesian “Mother House” hosted, the CG18; and, above all, the approach.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • I HAVE SEEN AND HAVE LIVED DON BOSCO’S MISSIONARY DREAM

    My dear friends, I greet you all most cordially as I write this to you – though I am very late as regards preparation of the Salesian Bulletin.
