Chaired by the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, and coordinated by his Vicar, Fr Stefano Martoglio, with his secretary, Fr Saimy Ezhanikatt, the event represented a reason for hope and a sign of a gradual return to normalcy in the life of the Congregation after the hard times of the pandemic.

(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.

  • AFTER THE TSUNAMI

    The pandemic has changed the way in which we relate with the world, others, and ourselves. We need to rebuild and to begin again in greater solidarity and with greater awareness so as to rebound from a silent calamity marked by pain, confinement, struggle, and fear.
