(ANS - Shuwuu) - Since 2016, the Catholic Prefecture of Mongolia has entrusted the Salesians of the Mongolian Delegation with a rural town called Shuwuu, about 40 km from the capital Ulanbaatar. Previously, from the earliest days of the Catholic mission, Shuwuu had been entrusted to the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary; it featured a social work, a kindergarten and a space devoted to agriculture. Then, the late Bishop Venceslao Padilla, who passed away in 2018, entrusted this promising community to the Salesians.

(ANS - Santiago) - On the afternoon of Sunday 18 October, the churches dedicated to Maria Assunta and St Francesco Borgia in the center of Santiago were attacked by local demonstrators: the church of the Assumption was totally destroyed, while the second, the institutional chapel of the Carabinieri, was damaged, but was saved by the intervention of the Fire Department. The attacks took place on the first anniversary of the social mobilization that began with marches and clashes that left thousands injured and thirty dead and put Sebastián Piñera's government in crisis. The archbishop of Santiago, Msgr. Celestino Aós, and the Provincial of the Salesians of Chile, Fr Carlo Lira, expressed their views on the matter.

(ANS - Palabek) - The production and distribution of over 24,000 masks in the Palabek refugee camp in northern Uganda has earned Salesian missionaries recognition from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The symbolic award gives even more value to the work of the Salesians among the approximately 56,000 refugees present in the camp, mostly women and children who fled the war in South Sudan.

  • Italy – Caritas 2020 Report: analyses and proposals to get out of the pandemic tunnel, all together

    (ANS - Rome) - The picture outlined by Caritas Italiana in its annual report on poverty and social exclusion, published last Saturday, October 17, on the occasion of the World Day to Fight Poverty, is a picture with many shadows and some light. Because the Covid-19 pandemic has hit a citizenry that has already been in difficulty for more than a decade and has brought people and households into a situation of need that until that moment were struggling: they are the "new poor". Positive notes, instead, come from the parallel growth of solidarity.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • FROM VALDOCCO TO THE WHOLE WORLD

    Today the invitation is made to everyone: Come! Get to know Valdocco. Browse around. Experience this place. Be still and listen to what the “walls are saying” because “at Valdocco, everything speaks”... What has taken place in transforming this space is much more than the mere remodeling of walls and rooms. A dream has come to life.
