Promoted by the Department of Formation of the Salesian Congregation and coordinated by the National Formation Office, the meeting saw the participation of 35 people, (29 in presence and 6 online), including the Provincial Vicars and the Directors of the formation houses, together with some members of their respective teams. The reflection was coordinated by Fr Erino Leoni, head of the National Office, and by Fr Francisco Santos and Fr Silvio Roggia, members of the Formation Department. Work centered on renewing Salesian formation in line with the GC28 what the Rector Major himself indicated for the next six years. There were many in-depth analyses on the subject and observations on the elements to be modified, deleted and introduced to the regulatory text. Alongside this reflection, there was no lack of moments of fraternity and sharing.
