El Salvador - Continental Meeting of Social Communication - America

24 September 2018

(ANS - Ayagualo) - "We must ensure that our communication tools help us generate visibility in the name of Don Bosco and of the Salesian charism and to communicate the good that is done for young people, especially the neediest, and the good that we want to do inviting other people to work together." The presentation of the video-message sent by the Rector Major opened the Continental Meeting of Social Communication - America. 29 participants gathered from 20 to 23 September in the retreat house of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Ayagualo, El Salvador.

The General Councilor for Social Communication, Fr Filiberto González, the Delegates of Communication of America, and Fr Ángel Prado, Superior of the Central American Province, took advantage of this space to reflect on how to place and set communication at the service of the Salesian mission, to do the greatest good possible, through evangelization, education and information.

The communicators identified strengths and weaknesses and established agreements to work together. Despite some weaknesses, it has been recognized that in the Provinces there are, indeed, initiatives and information and that communication as a transversal process in the educative-pastoral communities has grown in importance, its contribution to the mission of educating and evangelizing increasingly appreciated and the advantages positioning and image generate acknowledged.

The motto of the meeting was "Go online, on the networks and publish the Gospel", because in a digital world, permeated by social networks, young people must be reached in the "new courtyards, or playgrounds", which in addition to giving the opportunity to reach more people, help to create communion, announce the Gospel, spread values and promote good.
