(ANS - Zhytomyr) - Built in September 1994 in Zhytomyr, a city of almost 300,000 inhabitants, 110 km west of Kiev, Ukraine, the school "Vsesvit" was established thanks to several Italian benefactors who, during a trip to the countries of the former USSR, decided to give a concrete response to the appeal of a group of citizens who wanted to open a Christian school. That school, for almost two years now, and after several years of cooperation and preparation, has become Salesian; and now the Sons of Don Bosco who run it intend to place another typically Salesian structure: an oratory, alongside the existing educational center.

  • RMG – Saint Francis de Sales inspiring paths of holiness

    (ANS - Rome) - During the Spirituality Days of the Salesian Family 2022, dedicated to the spiritual and pastoral study of the Rector Major’s Strenna centered on St. Francis de Sales, Fr. Pierluigi Cameroni, Postulator General for the Causes of Saints of the Salesian Family, offered a contribution that highlights how “our journey to holiness and the promotion of the Causes of Beatification and Canonization of our Salesian Family draw great inspiration and strong motivation from him.” In fact, from his person and his doctrine emanate an impression of rare fullness, demonstrated in the serenity of his intellectual research, but also in the richness of his affections, in the "sweetness" of his teachings that have had a great influence on the Christian conscience.
