(ANS - Taisha) - During his initial formation phase, Fr Agustinus Togo had to make a fundamental decision for his life: abandon the path he had taken to become a professional footballer or follow God's call? This crossroads in his life came after he had played a friendly match with his mates from the formation house against a professional soccer team from his native Indonesia, a game in which he had dazzled everyone with his skills. And soccer? He did not abandon the sport. He continued to play and appreciate this sport that moves crowds in every corner of the world, such as the Ecuadorian Amazon, where Fr Togo works with the Achuar communities.

(ANS - Barcelona) - The "Artemide Zatti" House in Barcelona is the result of a long process or project, one that is now operative. The house aims to be the site of specific formation of the Salesian Coadjutors of the two European regions and is now open for business. The first Salesians to arrive shall learn Spanish and then devote two years to theological and pastoral formation at the "Don Bosco" Higher Institute of Religious Sciences in Martí-Codolar. The formation team is composed of Manuel Rupérez (of the Province with offices in Madrid - SSM) and Jordi Latorre (of the Province based in Valencia - SMX), to whom we asked a few questions.
