37th Salesian Family Spirituality Days coming soon
Precious opportunity of Salesian Family animation
Traditional January Salesian Family Spirituality Days are coming soon. This year, due to the WYD (World Youth Day) in Panama, January 22-27 the whole event is a little bit anticipated on the second week of January (10-13), again in Valdocco, Turin. As usual, the Strenna of the current year is the main theme of the SF Days - 'Holiness For You, Too!'
The four days spiritual - formation event will be participated by the Rector Major, Fr. Angel F. Artime, his Council and other 300 Salesian Family members, coming from most of the 31 SF groups from all continents. There are top inputs (Fr. Aldo Giraudo) and many experience sharing, open forum, panel discussion and group workshop. Taking advantage of the venue in Valdocco, there will be guided tour around the 'Valdocco-Holiness' spots. The hosting province of ICP (Piedmont - Valle D'Aosta) will contribute with a musical Gio' on the last evening (Saturday, January 12).
Even if you are not able to join the Rector Major in Turin, you can follow most of the SF Spirituality days on the SFS Website and LIVE streaming on the Facebook pages of the ANS agency.
As in past few years, there will be not many participants from the EAO region, only the consistent presence of 10 Caritas Sisters of Jesus (CSJ) coming from all of their provinces and vice-provinces, and faithfully participating SIHM Sisters (Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) from Thailand.
