Turin, Italy - May 2021 - Yesterday, Monday 24 May, starting at 6.30 pm, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, presided over the Mass of the Feast Day of Mary Help of Christians in the Basilica dedicated to her in Turin. At the end of the Mass, the statue of the Help of Christians was brought to the square in front of the basilica, and here the Rector Major prayed and consecrated the city to Mary Help of Christians. For the first time, the image of Mary Help of Christians found itself without the many faithful who every year came from all over the world to pay homage to it. But, despite their physical absence, the Help of Christians was certainly not alone: from everywhere, the faithful connected to pray to her and to entrust themselves to her.

(ANS - Rome) - After the meetings and gatherings of the past few months, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, has appointed Fr Daniel Antúnez, an Argentinean Salesian belonging to the South Argentina Province, as the new Procurator of "Missioni Don Bosco", the Salesian Mission Office of Turin.

Something very great is happening when, after two thousand years of human history, we continue to feel today, perhaps more than ever, that She, His Mother, is our Mother also. 

(ANS - Rome) - A little more than 10 days from the Feast Day of Mary Help of Christians, two important innovations arrive for Salesian Family members who intend to prepare adequately for this anniversary: ​​first of all, the booklets to accompany them are now available online, booklets for the celebration of the world Novena promoted by the Salesian Headquarters; also, the program of the celebrations scheduled for 23 and 24 May at the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Turin was officially clarified.

(ANS - Rome) - On the day on which the Salesian Family commemorates Saint Dominic Savio - yesterday, 6 May - and in the church dedicated to him in Rome, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, presided at the Eucharist wherein he welcomed the perpetual vows of eight young Salesians from 4 different continents.

(ANS - Rome) - A letter to express and testify to his confreres and the local population "the closeness, fraternal affection and great concern" – his own, and of the whole Congregation: a letter sent these first days of May by the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, to the Councilor for South Asia, Fr Michael Biju, to the Provincials and to the Salesians in India.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • 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. What would Don Bosco do if he were alive today?
