Fr. Antonio Marcelino, a Salesian from Portugal and General Coordinator for the Congress, and Giovanni Scavino, ADMA's World Animation Councilor, have enthusiastically invited the entire Salesian Family to prepare right now for this powerful moment of thanksgiving and entrustment to Mary.
The next Congress will be held in the "Paul VI" congress hall at the Shrine of Fatima, Portugal, a strongly Marian place where the Virgin Mary appeared to three young shepherd children in 1917 to invite the whole world to prayer and penance.
The title chosen for this event will be "I will give you the teacher," in memory of Don Bosco's nine-year dream whose 200th anniversary will be celebrated in 2024. It is a dream that was deeply imprinted in Don Bosco's heart and guided him throughout his life. The desire is for Mary Help of Christians to be more and more each day the Teacher who accompanies and guides the whole Salesian Family on the path to Jesus and to the young people most in need.
In the coming months, more information will be posted on the website dedicated to the Congress: https://mariaauxiliadora2024.pt
In the meantime, ADMA asks to entrust in prayer the preparation and realization of this great event of the Salesian Family.
