Peru – SYM's XII National Congress
Peru - November 2020 - The XII National Congress of the Salesian Youth Movement (SYM) of Peru took place in a family atmosphere; its motto: "We are the now of God". The event took place on the Zoom platform from 20 to 22 November and saw the participation of the SYM groups of the Salesians and the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA). The congress was held with the aim of strengthening SYM's identity, in the context of a rethink, as a way to discern the Christian vocation and live it boldly in the Church and in the world. A space to foster the bonds of unity, especially in this crucial national historical context. Also, the SYM path at national and local level was evaluated with a space for discernment and decision-making for the restructuring of the SYM in the light of synodality. The new National Council was also elected. The event was attended by: Sr. Elsy Núñez, FMA Provincial of Peru, Jessica Chambilla, one of the first SYM coordinators, and Fr Manuel Cayo, Provincial of the Salesians in Peru.
