(ANS – Rome) –The Episcopal Ordination of two eminent sons of Don Bosco, Cardinal Ángel Fernández Artime, the Rector Major of the Salesian Congregation and Titular Archbishop-elect of Ursona, and Archbishop Giordano Piccinotti, Titular Archbishop-elect of Gradisca and President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) took place in the Papal Basilica of St. Mary Major this evening at 3:30 p.m.

(ANS - Rome) - On the day of the Episcopal Ordination of Card. Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco, Archbishop Titular elect of Ursona, and of Archbishop Giordano Piccinotti, Archbishop Titular elect of Gradisca, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA), ANS is pleased to announce the decree of "deroga" that the Holy Father Pope Francis sent to the Rector Major yesterday, 19 April 2024

(ANS – Rome) – The Mass of episcopal ordination of Card. Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco, Titular Archbishop-elect of Ursona; and of Giordano Piccinotti, Titular Archbishop-elect of Gradisca, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA), is not only a Salesian event but primarily an event of the Church, in which the two Sons of Don Bosco place themselves at the full disposal of the needs of the Church. The participation of numerous Cardinals and Bishops in the Mass, coming from all over the world, will also be a manifestation of the "catholicity" of the rite.

(ANS - Rome) - Ninety years ago, at Easter 1934, Don Bosco was officially canonized. It was a grand apotheosis in Rome and around the world, elevating his human existence and making him a path and model of holiness for many believers. Two centuries after his prophetic Dream of the Nine Years in 1824, the saint continues to serve as a multiplying model of life. Looking ahead, in 2025, the 150th anniversary of the first Salesian Missionary Expedition to Argentina will be celebrated. These are significant dates to remember, but also opportunities to initiate verifications and projects for the future.

(ANS - Rome) - There is an air of great expecation throughout the Salesian world for the celebration of the Mass of the episcopal consecration of Card. Ángel Fernández Artime, the Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco, Titular Archbishop-elect of Ursona; and that of Archbishop Giordano Piccinotti, Titular Archbishop-elect of Gradisca, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA), which will take place next Saturday, 20 April 2024, in the Papal Basilica of St. Mary Major, starting at 3:30 p.m. (UTC+2). Both prelates will concelebrate their First Mass as bishops the following day, Sunday, 21st April, in the Salesian Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Rome, starting at 11:30am.

  • Italy – A Salesian on the front line of the war in Ukraine: "Being close counts, words come later"

    (ANS - Rome) - As he tells with a gentleness that does not seem to come from horror, he is "resting a little bit" in Rome these days. Fr Oleh Ladnyuk is a Ukrainian Salesian priest who is a military chaplain at the front, among the soldiers who fight in defence of their country and among the civilians who for over two years have seen their lives wiped out. He brings humanitarian aid where the missiles fall and from those places he helps with the evacuation of young people and adults - so far at least 500 people, but there are probably many more. These days the Salesian – who carries out his ministry in Dnipro and teaches History in a state school in the city – is in Rome to take part with two other priests and a dozen lay people from his country in the "Accompanying when Trauma Hits" course hosted by the Pontifical Salesian University in collaboration with the Faculty of Educational Sciences, with the DON BOSCO NEL MONDO Foundation and the Don Bosco Network. A project that aims to provide theoretical and methodological tools to deal with the traumas caused by war.
