Italy - International Marian circle of Mother House of Valdocco
Turin, Italy - 8 December 2020 - On the occasion of the anniversary of the oratory's foundation, the Motherhouse of Valdocco was the protagonist of an international Marian circle. A group of young people who usually attend the basilica of Mary Help of Christians and participate in the life of the "Mary Help of Christians" community animated an online prayer meeting, involving young people who had been invited to Turin to participate in a week of the work of the 28th General Chapter. The church of San Francesco di Sales welcomed the memory of Don Bosco's meeting with Bartolomeo Garelli, listened to the voices of the young people who manifested their bond with Valdocco and presented the prayer for the whole Salesian Family and for the needs of the world in this pandemic time to the Immaculate Virgin. The General Councilor for Youth Ministry, Fr Miguel Ángel García Morcuende, introduced the meeting and encouraged similar initiatives for the future.
