Slovenia - Youth Ministry programs transferred to social networks
Slovenia - April 2020 - Due to isolating to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the traditional Spiritual Exercises of Lent, prepared by the Salesian Youth Ministry and the Salesian Youth Movement (SYM) of Slovenia, have been transferred to the social network with the title "Friends in the world and also on the internet." For seven days, in the morning, a video was published on the theme presented by SDB, FMA and animators; in the afternoon, through the Zoom platform, young people connected for discussion groups on the chosen theme. In the evening, the traditional "Goodnight" was published by SDB of various communities, which, given the success, was also carried out by the young people of the SYM. Also, the monthly meeting with young people, prepared by the Delegate for Vocation Ministry, Fr Klemen Balažič, was also held online, on the theme of Pope Francis' Encyclical Christus Vivit.
