Venezuela - Feast of Fidelity

30 June 2021

Los Teques, Venezuela - June 2021 - On 25 June the Salesian Province of Venezuela (VEN) celebrated the Feast Day of Fidelity in the postnovitiate of Los Teques, a tradition born of the first Salesians, pupils and past pupils, who gathered with Don Bosco to celebrate his name day. A large representation of Salesians gathered with the Provincial Fr Rafael Montenegro after more than a year without in-person meetings due to the pandemic. After the welcome by Fr Alfredo Oliveros, VEN Vicar, the anniversaries of religious profession and priestly ordination of the Salesians were celebrated. A meeting followed on the theme "Youth Ministry in a Vocational Key", led by Fr Jorge Bastidas, Provincial Delegate for Youth Ministry. Mass was then celebrated, presided over by Msgr. José Ángel Divassón, SDB, Vicar Apostolic Emeritus of Puerto Ayacucho, and Fr Montenegro formally welcomed the missionaries who are being incorporated into the VEN Province: Tomislav Puškarić, from Croatia, and Petrus Nanwar, from India.
