Meeting of SYM Europe.
WHEN? This summer, from 11th until 16th of August
WHERE? in Italy (Colle don Bosco, Turin, Mornese)
THEME: Agents of Don Bosco’s VISION, PASSION & MISSION
We want to go back to the roots of our Movement, before setting sail for the places where our mission calls us. Don Bosco’s vision started with a dream sent by God. Let’s go back where all this started, where Don Bosco’s and Mother Mazzarello’s passion burned for the love of God and the young.
In doing this, we put ourselves on the same path along which the whole Church is walking too. After two important Synods of the Bishops, Pope Francis recently gave the Church this great exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which is dedicated to love in the family. Rector Major’s Strenna 2017 to the Salesian Family is entitled “WE ARE A FAMILY! Every home, a school of Life and Love.”
The places where Confronto 2017 will take place introduce us to the story of Don Bosco’s family. They also talk us about why and how both Don Bosco and Madre Mazzarello recreated a family around many young people in need.
Within their own families, as well as in the service for the young and their families, SYM members can be agents of Don Bosco’s vision, passion and mission today.
