(ANS - Rome) - In the document "Post-Chapter Reflections" that the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, delivered to the Congregation, the fourth action plan develops the theme: "Formation to be SALESIAN PASTORS TODAY". Starting from today, the fourth video of the series “It's time for Chapter 28” is available online, in which Fr Á.F. Artime briefly illustrates just what all this means.

(ANS - Rome) - At 7 am today, 15 September, Ángel Fernández Fernández, the father of our Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, breathed his last after a long illness. Born in Luanco, Asturias, Spain, on 12 June 1932, he passed away after 89 years of life and 61 years of marriage, by the side of his mother Isabel Artime.

Pordenone, Italy - September 2021 - On Friday, 9 September, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, met with the Salesian community and the citizens of Pordenone, to celebrate the Holy Mass. It was a moment of great importance for all present. The Salesians arrived in Pordenone officially in 1924 with the first Rector, Fr Renato Ziggiotti. But the mission was already initiated in 1920 by Fr Giuseppe Marin, a priest of the diocese of Pordenone, who had started some youth work, setting up a first boarding school named after Don Bosco.

TO THE POINT OF GIVING HIS VERY LIFE

Realizing that he could not stop him, he told him, "I will not let you pass even if I have to give up my life." Thus, it was—the suicide bomber set off the charge.

Pordenone, Italy - 10 September 2021 - On 10 September, the city of Pordenone's mayor, Alessandro Ciriani, presented to the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, the fourteenth-century Seal of the Municipality, as a tribute to the almost centennial Salesian presence in the city. The presence of the Salesians in Pordenone, as stated on the plaque given to the Successor of Don Bosco, “is a source of pride and apical testimony to the rootedness of the values of the Salesian community in the city, which, step by step, is preparing to celebrate its first 100 years under the open, joyful and innovative guidance of Don Bosco, to whom many Pordenone students owe their education and instruction.”

(ANS - Turin) - The 10th Successor of Don Bosco, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, returned to Turin on Saturday, 11 September, 2021, to inaugurate the new mechatronics, electronics, information technology and energy laboratories and workshops of the "Edoardo Agnelli" Technological Institute of the Salesians, as a part of the renovation project called “Together We Build the Future”.
