       Rome, 20 January 2021 -- According to the letter of the Rector Major, the Centenary Year of Fr Paul Albera (1921-2021) starts and ends on 14 January (Acts 432, 2020). During the Salesian Family spirituality days we were able to watch an interview given by Salesian Br. Paolo Vaschetto, one of the experts on the life of the second successor of Don Bosco.

       In order to get to know Fr Paul Albera better, there is wide range of initiatives

  • Interview regarding Fr Albera on 16 January (SF Spirituality Days)
  • Exhibition at Valdocco (Casa Museum Don Bosco) - already online, opening on Don Bosco's Feast day
  • New Biography by Fr Aldo Giraudo in preparation (5 languages)
  • Congress on Fr Albera at Valdocco (Oct 30-Nov1, 2021)
  • Fr Albera letters available on Boscolink and on SDL
  • Fr Albera photos available in the EAO Photo Gallery
