All the GC27 members in Rome, left for Turin last 22nd of February morning, to make a pilgrimage to the Salesian holy places.We also want to entrust our conversion to Mary Help of Christians and Don Bosco, so that through their intercession we can become witnesses of evangelical radicalism. I will pray for you as well While relying also on your prayers.
I invite you to communicate the GC27 in and out of your provinces via the internet, radio, TV or print. The ANS, as the official information of the GC27, will keep you updated on everything that happens. SDB.org will provide you with documents related to the GC27 which will help you closely accompany the chapter in the process of reflection, discernment and decision making.
There will be an interesting novelty this time: groups of young people and students of CGS (Salesian cinematic and artistic Group) and students from the Faculty of Social Communication of UPS will do interviews during the Chapter, and create video clips that will be placed on ANSChanel. Their outputs will be the youthful viewpoint of the GC27.
As Councillor, I end my six-year term by heartily thanking you for your friendship and your communicative commitment in each of your provinces. I have seen a growth in the new mentality of communication in the congregation, always according to the SSCS (Salesian Social Communications System), and this became a reality, thanks to your work. Pray that the Lord will inspire the Chapter members in the choice of the new General Council that will govern and animate the Congregation during the next six years.
Greetings from the members of the Social Communications Department who have long been fully involved in providing you with information about the GC27.
Yours in Don Bosco,
