The Salesian organization, created more than fifty years ago by the Iberian Conference at the service of youth ministry in Spain, addresses this website, first of all, to educational and pastoral agents dedicated to the formation of young people - animators, catechists, teachers, educators - in the Salesian mission, but also to all the educative and pastoral agents of the Church.
This new website covers the Salesian pastoral proposal as a whole, as well as serving as a compass for gathering formative resources and uniting the lines of pastoral reflection. “The experience will permit us to get you closer to a whole bank of materials and enhance the resources offered by our pastoral magazines: Misión Joven and Catequistas. Furthermore, materials and opinions will be offered in which different educators will contribute with current experiences, ideas and reflections,” says Fr José Miguel Núñez, Director of the CNSPJ and of the magazine Misión Joven. The publication En-clave pastoral will also be available, which will be inserted in the website and will be disseminated through the networks to all pastoral agents.
The website was created as a mirror of the operational model of Salesian Youth Ministry in four main areas. The school, in the field of formal education and culture, in which an evangelizing and quality presence is promoted. Oratories and youth centers, as an educational-pastoral response to the free time of children, adolescents and young people. The parishes which are entrusted to the Salesians through which they enrich the local Church with the Salesian charism. Social platforms, as a response to the urgent needs of young people, more specifically those who most vulnerable, impoverished and at risk of social exclusion
Furthermore, on http://www.pastoraljuvenil.es there are various sections that will allow you to learn more about the Salesian Youth Movement (MJS) or the blog "Ser Salesiano", with a marked vocational character, and the various formative itineraries promoted throughout Spain. From the itinerary of education to the faith, the backbone of pastoral action; to the itinerary of prayer, with which it intends to accompany the experience of openness to transcendence and the maturation of the Christian experience; passing through the affective-sexual formation itinerary, the accompaniment formation itinerary, the accompanying proposal for young Christian adults or the formation itineraries of educators in schools, mainly Pastoral Directors and Coordinators.
