Ecuador – “With Don Bosco's eyes”: distance learning course of CSFPA

09 February 2021

(ANS - Quito) - The Salesian Center for Ongoing Formation in America (CSFPA), based in Quito, is launching a distance training course this year entitled "Through the eyes of Don Bosco". The goal is to enable those in formation to gain the wisdom of reading, assuming and transforming the reality in which we live, starting from the light brought by the life and charism of Don Bosco.

The course aims to make known and exercise the characteristics of the Salesian discernment of reality, to take them on as an effective method for updating the Salesian identity in daily life, questioning oneself and one's habits and generating new proposals. This path is achieved through the application of the tripartite method of seeing, judging and acting, which translates the CSFPA's own methodology: historical-critical-experiential.

Lay collaborators in the Salesian mission, Salesians of Don Bosco and other members of the Salesian Family in the various realities of the American continent will be able to take part in the course on the recommendation of their respective Provincials, up to a maximum of 80 people in total. All members will then be distributed in communities of 20 people, divided in turn into 4 groups of 5 participants, accompanied by a tutor. The duration of the course is 5 months.

The methodology foresees the presence of Facilitators who will develop the following themes: globalization, family realities, the situation in the world of education, social communication, the growth of poverty ... All as regards the world of youth... which is what is the most pertinent for the Salesian Congregation - and in this context of pandemic, with all the challenges and opportunities that this entails.
