Italy - Meeting of Salesian Cooperators Responsible for Italy Formation
Belluno, Italy - July 2018 – From 20 to 22 July, at the Salesian Institute "Agosti", the Salesian Cooperators in charge of Formation throughout Italy experienced three days of study and reflection to define the national plan of initial formation for Aspirants. The days of study and discussions included those responsible for the formation and several Provincial Coordinators; their aim: to develop the new plan according to the 4x3 skills model, that is: the four pillars of "knowledge" (knowing, knowing how to do, knowing how to be, knowing how to live in communion) combined with three dimensions: human, Christian and Salesian. The model pivots on the person to bring out its unity in the path of formation. This plan aims to be shared both in construction and in application and unify the path for the aspiring Salesian Cooperators.
