(ANS - Mafinga) - Tanzania is considered the most beautiful place in the wild world. The Ngorongoro Crater, which is home to approximately 25,000 animals, is considered one of the most beautiful places to find lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhinos. Life there is beautiful with the beauty of nature and is enriched with the history of its people. In Tanzania, the Salesians started a mission in the Mafinga area in 1980, and they saw the need to open a house for 500 orphans.

(ANS – Xuan Hiep) – The last event of the Rector Major’s  visit to the Provincial House in HCM City was the great Salesian Family encounter in the afternoon of February 22nd. About 900 participants were present from all groups of the Salesian Family: SDB, FMA, Don Bosco Past Pupils, FMA Past Pupils, VDB, SGC as well many Friends of Don Bosco, Parents of Salesians - especially of the numerous Salesian missionaries ad gentes working in all five continents - and some benefactors.

(ANS - Catania) - Don Bosco used to say, "do not put off to tomorrow the good you can do today, because maybe tomorrow you will not have time." There has never been a more appropriate phrase to describe what is happening with the Salesians of San Gregorio, near Catania, as they launch the project "A Strange Rainbow: all the colours of the invisible." It is a project to take care of foreign children in accordance with the canons of the Preventive System: education as a matter of the heart; reason, religion (according to their beliefs), and loving-kindness.

  • Listen to the voice of God in the young

    Pope Francis is undoubtedly one of the greatest leaders of our time; it is impossible for a believer to understand the geopolitical and social context while ignoring his interventions. He is a profoundly innovative Pontiff who always surprises us with his teaching impregnated the "freshness" of the Gospel which frightens and shock many people. 


  • Italy - Salesian Mission Day 2017: Don Bosco's dream continues

    (ANS - Rome) - The Salesian Mission Day is an event that is celebrated all round the world, although on different dates. It offers an opportunity to reflect on the missionary dimension of the Salesian charism. Next Sunday, 26 February it will be celebrated in Italy, with the traditional name "DOMISAL" (Salesian Mission Sunday). The guiding theme will be "... and they stayed with us," recalling the action of the Salesian missionaries among the indigenous peoples of Latin America.




    My dear friends, readers, friends of Don Bosco and his works throughout the world, and my dear Salesian Family: I greet you with all cordiality, wishing you the best in 2017, the new year that the Lord have given us as a gift.
