Italy - Preventive System as Education System: 44 Salesian Theology students begin new academic year

29 September 2022

Lanzo Torinese, Italy - Sept. 15, 2022 - The beginning of the new Formative Year of the Turin Crocetta Community is traditionally marked by a time of fraternity, reflection, and sharing. Two days are dedicated to a time that has the purpose of reconstituting the community of Salesian students, gathering students of the second and third courses again as they return from their summer activities, together with the newly appointed Deacons who continue at the Crocetta on their path of formation for a further year and, above all, the Salesians of the first course, who are joining the Crocetta Community for the first time. It was an especially meaningful occasion this year, given the group’s strong international background consisting of 44 Salesian students from as many as 19 different nationalities. The Rector, Fr. Marek Chrzan, and the Salesians of the Formation Team spent these days together with the student Salesians at the house of spirituality located in the complex of the Shrine of St. Ignatius, not far from Lanzo Torinese, which has hosted the great Turin saints and blesseds, including St. John Bosco, St. Giuseppe Cafasso, St. Leonardo Murialdo, Blesseds Giuseppe Allamano, Michele Rua, Federico Albert, Clement Marchisio, and Francesco Faà di Bruno. This time was also an opportunity to open the reflection aimed at drafting the Formative Project intended to guide the new year. The pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Loreto near Forno (Alpi Graie) concluded the meeting to launch the new Formative Year.
