D.R. Congo - Meeting of Rectors of Salesian works in Central Africa
Lubumbashi, D.R. Congo - November 2022 - The Salesian Province of Central Africa (AFC), organized a meeting for Rectors of works from November 21-23. Initially scheduled in Goma, the session was held at the Salesian theologate in Lubumbashi, due to the precarious security conditions in Goma and surrounding areas, which also resulted in the non-participation of the Rectors from the eastern part of the country. During the various sessions chaired by Fr. Guillermo Basañes, AFC Provincial, together with the Provincial Council, the Rectors of the communities in the southern part of the Province analyzed various themes on the elaboration of the specific tools of Salesian pastoral action. The guidelines and directives on spiritual accompaniment and the elaboration of the scrutiny placed each Rector before the great responsibility of his service. The Rectors also addressed the issue of the "Digital World," where the Salesians of the AFC Province, must be active for the mission of educator-pastors. In addition, the Provincial Economer presented the Provincial Solidarity Procedure Manual.
