Italy - One true family: Salesian family camp and renewal of young Salesians

19 September 2022

Catania, Italy - September 2022 - The Salesian charism on Sicilian soil once again manifests itself as aggregative, appealing and an opportunity to regenerate under the common fatherhood of God reflected in St. John Bosco. Attracted in this case were family members of the Salesians, who, from various parts of Sicily, gathered last September 3 at the Colonia Don Bosco beach at the Playa in Catania for a day of formation, fraternity, and relaxation. This year the theme of holiness was the backdrop for the customary meeting, which began with a moment of reflection on some figures of "saints next door," held by the Provincial Vicar, Fr. Franco di Natale; it continued with the renewal of vows of eight Salesians during the Eucharistic celebration; and concluded with the sharing of lunch and an afternoon of relaxation. The time of the initial greetings and renewal, experienced with feelings of praise and thanksgiving to God for the gift of vocation, allowed family members to feel part of one true family with a common goal: to be parents, brothers and sisters of young Salesians on a journey of service toward God's will.
