RMG - Youth Ministry Meeting of America South Cone Region
Rome, Italy - October 2020 - The Youth Ministry Department, led by the General Councilor Fr Miguel Angel García Morcuende, coordinated the work of the Youth Ministry meeting (PG) of the South Cone America Region, divided into four moments of study and reflection, from 24 to 27 October. The reflection centered on the analysis of the challenges and educational and pastoral perspectives highlighted in the previous meeting with each YM Provincial Delegate. It was noted that joint formation is indispensable in order to better understand the Salesian educative-pastoral model; also, the need to continue to pursue a planning mentality of each work and each sector within it, where planning is the result of community discernment; also, to understand and assimilate the charismatic expansion of the mission, and the true meaning and urgency of the Educational-Pastoral Community; rethink some areas or sectors of activity of the Region where the mission takes place; strengthen and develop oratories, youth centers and social works; rethink the Salesian identity of parishes. In addition, some guidelines and commitments at the provincial level were suggested.
