EDITORIAL

  • 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. In fact, it is the first time that a General Chapter of the Salesians takes its name from a question: "What kind of Salesians for the youth of today?"

EVENTS

  • Portugal - "Young people commit to participate in Church life"

    (ANS - Fátima) - The Portuguese bishops met in Fatima to address the theme of young people, youth ministry and vocations in the context of the forthcoming Synod of Bishops. On the agenda, issues related to accompaniment, faith, vocational discernment, the space that young people have in parish communities, the integration of young people and their contribution to evangelization. In support of the work of reflection of the Portuguese episcopate were Fr Fabio Attard, General Councilor for Youth Ministry, and Fr Mario Óscar Llanos, SDB, Dean of the Faculty of Educational Sciences of the Salesian Pontifical University.

SPECIAL REPORTS

  • RMG - World Refugee Day. Salesians active all over the world

    (ANS - Rome) - In 2017, due to wars, violence and persecution, there were 68.5 million people forced to flee their homes, with more than half being minors (53%); of these, about 40 million were displaced within their own countries and 25.4 moved abroad. For the Salesians, who have always worked in support of the neediest of young people, the data published for the World Refugee Day by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) acts as new impetus for their commitment in the field.

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. (I make the editor sweat because very often the deadline for submission is upon me as I sit down to write my message – which happens with everything else that bears my name and is penned in my own hand.)
