(ANS - Seville) - How far and wide does Don Bosco go? Certainly up to the more than 130 countries on the five continents where the Salesians are present today. What if you wanted to go even further? Well, if we were to go to Antarctica, we'd also find a small image of Don Bosco there too. This photo was taken 15,073 kilometers from Spain as Don Bosco is present as patron of the military contingent that accompanies environmental researchers on the Antarctic continent.

(ANS – Didia) – “One thing I quickly learned about Tanzania is the incredibly welcoming nature of the people here. Since I arrived every person I have met has welcomed me like a family member, whether it be into their home, shop or school. 'Karibu' ('welcome' in Kiswahili) must be the most common word here and this welcoming nature, from what I can see, is a strong part of the culture here, and is something I am very appreciative of.” This is Rebecca, a youngster serving with Great Britain Volunteering Salesian project “Bosco Volunteer Action” (BOVA). This is her first letter from Didia, Tanzania.

  • Mongolia – Cl. Kanayochukwu, SDB: “My expectation is to encounter Christ with the youngsters”

    (ANS – Ulaanbaatar) – “The presence of the Salesians in Nigeria has been a blessing to many youngsters.

  • 2020: "Young people on the front line"

    Which young people should be the protagonists of history?

    Young agnostics? Yes.

    Young people who have a lukewarm faith? Yes.

    Young people who have estranged themselves from the Church? Yes.

    Every young person has something to say to others, to adults, to priests, to nuns, to bishops and to the Pope.

  • RMG – Salesian Family Patron's Feast - January 24

    (ANS – Rome) – With the fast-approaching 400th anniversary of Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622) in two years, that is, 2022, we may see a growing movement of Don Bosco's Salesian Family to explore their Patron Saint. The overall feeling in many provinces is that the young Salesians don't know much about St. Francis de Sales. There are two new young missionaries ready to enter Mongolia - one has read the Philothea (Lover of God) - Introduction to the Devout Life - of Saint Francis de Sales already 10 times, but the other young missionary (both practical trainees) never even heard about this book! Astounding!
