(ANS – Sherbrooke) – Fr. Romeo Trottier, SDB, passed serenely from Sherbrooke, QC, into eternity at 4:20 a.m. on Sunday, September 13.

(ANS - Antananarivo) - Madagascar is also still struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only because the new coronavirus has infected 15,925 people with 216 victims in the country, but also because the lack of international tourists due to the blocking of flights and travel has generated enormous problems for the tourism industry and all the related activities it generates. Faced with this situation, the Salesians have worked out a detailed plan to help, as far as possible, the people most in need, starting with those closest to their environments.

  • Italy – Simply priests

    (ANS - Rome) - On 15 September 1993, in Palermo, Fr Pino Puglisi was brutally killed by the mafia. A symbolic coincidence, on the same day of this year Fr Roberto Malgesini was killed. Fr Puglisi was bothersome because he distanced young people from the world of crime, removed from the street those boys who, without his help, would have been sucked into the life of organized crime, used for small robberies and drug dealing. Fr Malgesini had always been involved in helping people in difficulty, the poorest people. For years he translated the Christian message into practice, bringing breakfast to the poor, accompanying them to doctors himself, managing the municipal canteen and dormitory, welcoming people, mainly migrants.
