Italy – “Thank You Feast” for the Rector Major
Rome, Italy – June 23rd – The community of the Salesians’ General House celebrated the “Thank You Feast” for the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime. Starting from 1870 in Valdocco, on the occasion of the feast of St. John the Baptist, on June 24th, the past pupils greeted Don Bosco and expressed their gratitude to him. Reviving this tradition, the Salesians of the General House celebrated the Rector Major with a moment of fraternal encounter in which they remembered in a special way the anniversaries of the Salesians of the community: the 75 years of profession of Salesian Brother Renato Celato, the 50 years of profession of Joan Luis Playà, Philippe Frémin and Gael Sullivan and also the 25 years of ordination of Martín Lasarte and Silvio Roggia.
