Rio Negro, Argentina - September 2023 - A meeting of Salesians and Daughters of Mary Help of Christians who are missionaries ad gentes in the Province of Argentina South (ARS) took place from Saturday 16 September to Monday 18 September at the Stefenelli Retreat House. Accompanying them were Fr Dario Perera, ARS Provincial; Fr Francisco Chimento, Provincial Delegate for Missions; and Salesian Brother Agustín Camiletti, Provincial Delegate for Youth Ministry. "For some time we have been thinking about a space for meeting and reflection for the missionaries ad gentes, aware of the great process of 'inculturation' and insertion that arriving in our Salesian mission land requires," said Fr Perera in his invitation to the meeting. He added: "This is why I wish to propose a meeting to share, reflect and discern, in fraternal communion, the steps that will continue to help us in our missionary commitment as a response to the Salesian circumstances in Argentina today." During the meeting, the missionaries were able to share their experiences with the volunteers of the Province who were in the same place, participating in their meeting convened by the team of Provincial volunteers.

(ANS – Avellaneda) – As is the case every year, in August – the month of Don Bosco's birth – the multi-sport "Racing Club" in Avellaneda pays tribute to its Patron and Protector, St John Bosco. And to do so, this year the Department of Culture and History, together with the presence of authorities, members and young people, officially unveiled a majolica in tribute to Don Bosco in the Tita Mattiussi sports centre, next to the access door to the gym, the changing rooms and the offices of the youth teams. All this happened while, in the full Salesian spirit and in a festive oratory atmosphere, a few metres away, “Racing Solidario”  – the Club's Social Responsibility Department – held a recreational and educational day for more than 500 boys and girls.
