Italy - Spiritual exercises for SDB and FMA Rectors of Sicily

30 March 2022

Colle San Rizzo, Italy - March 2022 - The annual spiritual exercises for the Rectors of the SDB and FMA communities of Sicily are a tradition that is repeated every two years to foster greater knowledge and sharing. For the 400th anniversary of the death of St. Francis de Sales, the spiritual exercises were preached by Fr Gianni Ghiglione, a Salesian, scholar, and expert on the holy bishop from Geneva. At the FMA house in Colle San Rizzo (Messina), from March 20 to 26, the participants were able to experience an intense week of prayer, formation, and discussion. The meeting allowed for informal moments of exchange and reinforcement of Salesian educational praxis, and a chance for rectors to share and discuss action at the educational-pastoral level. The Spiritual Exercises were also attended by the Provincial, Fr Giovanni D'Andrea, the Provincial, Sr. Angela Maria Maccioni, and their respective Provincial Councils.
