17 July 2018

(ANS - Leuven) - The "St John Berchmans" Province of Northern Belgium and the Netherlands (BEN) launched its new website on July 13th. "With this site we want to bring into the network, as an image of our Province, what is our core business: to be a family at the service of young people," explained the provincial leaders of communication.

"We want to create a site for men and women, young people, boys and girls ... And we want to address a wide audience, so we chose to create a site that presents and narrates the vast reality of the Flemish and Dutch Salesian Family."

The family atmosphere is in fact transmitted right from the site's homepage which opens with the colorful image of a vast movement of active and joyful people, as it explains: "Don Bosco today are the Salesians, the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, and many other common people who work daily and with their hearts for the young. Everyone has their own identity, but they all share the same roots."

From the first page of the site it is then possible to access 21 different sections; illustrated therein, and in detail, are social projects, work in education, the network of Salesian youth organizations, groups of the Salesian Family, opportunities for volunteering and spiritual growth, communication services, the story of Don Bosco …

Above all, the site intends to be a gateway to the beauty of Salesian reality in the territories of BEN. Already in the last year, the Province shared through its channels 240 articles, namely "stories that testify to the joy of the Gospel", and that try to illuminate the world "with more joy, more love, more faith."

Well connected with social networks and structured to facilitate the sharing of content, the website will also be updated thanks to the reports and content sent by visitors to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
