Rome (Italy). We are close to the beginning of  General Chapter XXIV , an important event for every Daughter of Mary Help of Christians, Educating Community, and the Salesian Family in the world.

General Chapter XXIV begins at  the FMA Generalate in Rome on 11 September 2021 and ends on 24 October 2021.

The General Chapter is a «key moment for evaluation, reflection, and guidance in a common  search for God’s will» (C 135). All the FMA, Educating Communities, lay people, and young people of the Salesian Family collaborate in the Chapter experience with a participation in prayer, study, and proposals. The purpose of the General Chapter is to deal with topics relevant to the mission of the Institute «in order to be an ever-more efficacious presence in the Church and in the world» (C 136).

The theme of GC XXIV: “Do whatever he tells you” (Jn 2:5). Communities that generate life in the heart of contemporaneity”, makes explicit the objective that the FMA Institute proposes: To re-awaken the original freshness of the vocational fruitfulness of the FMA Institute.
