Rome (Italy). Since 8 December 2021, the website of the Salesian Family is online, renewed in content and graphics:
In the Church with Don Bosco, for the young and the least. The Salesian Family is presented on the Home page as “an ecclesial reality extended throughout the world that gathers 32 officially recognized religious institutions and movements, inspired by the charism and apostolic mission of the founder St. John Bosco”, present in 5 continents with 32 Groups and 200,000 religious and lay people involved.
Available in 5 languages, Italian, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, even from mobile devices, the website allows intuitive and effective navigation. The ‘Resources’ section, with the publications of the last few years, has been increased.
Who we are. Browsing the site it is possible to know and deepen the history of the Salesian Family, of the Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco, Fr. Angel Fernandez Artime, who is its Father and Center of unity, and the organization of the SF. The new platform also acts as a link for documents concerning the Secretariat and the World Council, the animation bodies of the Salesian Family.
The Groups of the Salesian Family. The specific identity of each of the 32 officially recognized religious groups and movements, inspired by the charism and apostolic mission of the founder, St. John Bosco is presented with images, an in-depth information sheet and a link to the corresponding site.
Salesian holiness. “The spirituality inherited from Don Bosco is a spirituality that enriches the whole Church with the gift of holiness of so many of his daughters and sons (Identity Card, art.26)”. A calendar shows the recurrences of the Saints and Blesseds of the Salesian Family present in each month of the year, referring to the information sheet with the prayer to ask for their intercession.
SF Days. They are the main event that unites all the SF Groups. The site becomes its information organ, hosts news and, in the Events section, the online registration form for the 40th edition of the Salesian Family Spirituality Days , that will take place from 13 to 16 January at Turin-Valdocco Online.
