RMG – The month of September is marked by significant missionary events

05 September 2017

(ANS – Roma) - The month of September is marked by significant missionary events. The most important of them is the missionary expedition of 22 Salesians to Mongolia, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Siberia, Japan, Australia, Great Britain, Spain, Ireland, Ecuador, Antilles, D. R. of Congo and the new foundation in Malaysia. There are 3 missionaries from Europe, 2 from America, 4 from Africa and 13 from Asia. 

They will receive a formation in Rome and in places of Salesian importance. They will be sent out, to-gether with the FMA missionaries, on September 24, from the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians. This month we also begin a three-month-long on-going course of formation on Mission ministry. 20 Salesians (5 missionaries from Africa, 14 from America and 1 from Asia) will start a pilgrimage to Salesian sites on 17 September. Then, along with other participants, they will continue at the UPS, Rome. They will fresh on up their missionology, spirituality and salesianity. The programme culminates with a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

All these confreres of ours, the very young and the very experienced, will offer the Congrega-tion and the Church a renewed and intelligent missionary enthusiasm. They will learn to bring Christ to confront the new challenges of the world and of today's youth. Let us pray for these Salesians and also for all of us, so that we may bring the fire of the Holy Spirit wherever the Lord desires to.
