Syria – Despite the war, a musical by the young of Aleppo's Salesian oratory
Aleppo, Syria - March 2018 - From 21 to 23 March, the young people of the Salesian oratory in Aleppo staged a musical entitled, "His Love transformed me", a story based on Don Bosco's dream of 1844, in which lambs become shepherds. The musical was produced with over 100 young university and high school students and was the fruit of a formative journey that took place during the first pastoral semester, led by Fr Pier Jabloyan, director of the Salesian community in Aleppo. The show was attended by families and young people from Aleppo, the young of the Salesian oratory in Damascus and Kafroun and a group of young people from the Al Fidar school in Lebanon. Various priests, nuns and bishops were present at the performance, including Greek Melkite bishop Jean-Clément Jeanbart, Latin bishop George Abi Khazen and Maronite bishop Joseph Tpbji.
