and Heads of the Salesian Family Groups




Topic: The Presentation of the 2018 Spirituality Days



Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Salesian Family:


I send you, first of all, a fraternal greeting in the name of the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, and of the members of the Secretariat for the Salesian Family.  At this time, I wish to share with you the news that the 2018 Salesian Family Spirituality Days are already almost all prepared.


1. Information about the Days


The Spirituality Days will be held at the VALDOCCO, Turin, from January 18th (at 4 PM) to 21st (after lunch), 2018, and will focus on the theme of studying the Strenna of the Rector Major for next year:

“Lord, give me this water” (John 4: 15)




Following the thread of this Gospel passage, we will reflect together, within the framework of the next Synod of Bishops on "Youth, the Faith, and Vocation Discernment", the importance for the mission of our entire Salesian Family to cultivate the precious art of listening and accompaniment, with the conditions they require and the service they bring to the journey of personal, Christian, and vocational growth of the person.


2. Participants

¾  Those responsible for animation in the Salesian Family of the different groups of the same general or local levels.

¾  Those responsible for formation of distinct groups of the SF and members of their teams, especially those who work in the youth pastoral sector and those who are preparing to do so.

¾  Please also indicate that each group, according to the number of available places, designates a significant number of young people, engaged in the accompanying teams, who can contribute to reflection on the subject, helping them economically, if necessary.


3. To Register
