29 October 2018

Rome, Italy - October 2018 - Antonio Boccia is the new World Coordinator of the Association of Salesian Cooperators. The announcement was made by Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesian Congregation, on the evening of Saturday 27 October, during the 5th World Congress. "To know that the Salesian identity is a priority for you (all) leaves me joyful and peaceful," the Rector Major told the more than 300 participants at the Congress, coming from 66 countries. "Young people, in their reality, are our priority as Salesians in the world. I think that feeling this means that the Holy Spirit continues to accompany our reflection and the journey we take: they have been days of grace for the association." Fr Á.F Artime, referring to the closing of the Synod, in which he took part, recalled how "in the Synod document you will meet many elements that speak of young people, their poverty, their challenges." Before announcing the name of the new World Coordinator, the Rector Major thanked all three candidates and he spent words of gratitude for Noemi Bertola, outgoing Coordinator, for her efforts over the last six years, at the service of the association and young people all over the world.
