Italy - Meeting of Teenagers of Salesian Youth Movement of Sicily
Piazza Armerina, Italy - January 2020 - From 3 to 5 January, the 17th edition of the "Teenagers Meeting" of the Salesian Youth Movement (MGS) Sicily was held on the theme "Worlds in contact - Web vs Reality", with 160 participants from the various Salesian presences in the region. "It is about communication and relationship," said Fr Giovanni D'Andrea, Provincial of the Salesians of Sicily and Tunisia, "but it cannot be seen only from a virtual point of view, but gazes, moments, contacts, meetings are needed to give fullness. As educators, it is necessary to know how to speak the language of young people, using these tools to convey positive messages and meet as friends. Today we can even talk about virtual oratories, places where one meets, organizes events, fosters relationships, evangelizes, prays, where educators must be present and capable of understanding the language with awareness."
