Tunisia - Is Tunisia a new Valdocco?

02 January 2023

Manouba, Tunisia - December 2022 - The Salesians of Don Bosco and the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, together with 45 young animators of Salesian oratories in Tunisia, greeted the year 2022 in an extraordinary way as part of a meeting held last December 23, in the presence of Fr. Domenico Paternò, Rector of the Salesian community of Manouba. The theme of the meeting, animated by Fr. Bashir Souccar, Head of the Manouba Oratory, was "All as a leaven of peace" and had as its subtitle: "On the way to a culture of peace." The objective was to strengthen the spirit and charism of Don Bosco in this land and all those present welcomed the initiative with enthusiasm and concentration and with the hope that similar meetings could take place frequently. In particular, after this day and after listening to the opinion of the Oratorians, the need to establish a Salesian Youth Movement in Tunisia emerged, adapting to the local context. The meeting, then, ended in a truly Salesian atmosphere: with much merriment, dancing, singing, sports games, and moments of sharing.
