By ADMA EAO Congress Steering Committee        ADMA EAO, 13 September 2021 — After a long and involved preparation since January 2020, the Second EAO ADMA Congress (online) was a true rich and inspiring charismatic experience. On 11-12 September (3 hours each day) several hundred ADMA members, their spiritual animators (SDB and FMA), SDB provincials, young Salesians in formation and other members of the Salesian Family came together to pray, deepen their identity, interact and get to know each other better.        Praying together        On Sunday (Day 2) the beautiful animated Rosary prayer in 6 languages (Tagalog, English, Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese and Cebuano) with amazing Marian songs in the respective languages. The opening prayer was offered in Tok Pisin and Motu (PNG) and final prayer was in Thai. Youtube presents these prayers.        Getting to know each other better        Through the professionally and wholeheartedly prepared ADMA life video sharing, we learn of ADMA faith experience (TLS), a young ADMA voice (FIS), stories of starting experiences (KOR, INA, VIE), the long and rich history of devotion to Mary Help of Christians in the Philippines (FIN). At the end of...

Meeting of Salesian Cooperators of Interamerica Region

  Santiago, Chile – February 2021 – The “Fundación Don Bosco” of Chile continues to work for the most needy, especially in this time of pandemic. Thanks to the award of government projects, it will expand its offer of integral work in six new homes that shall welcome children and young people in situations of vulnerability. “Vuelve Casas Compartidas Domingo Savio” is a project that offers young people a transitory place for their social inclusion. There will be five houses that will allow them to live there, start their studies, look for work and achieve autonomy that will give them a permanent integration into society in Santiago. To these houses must be added the “Miguel Magone” Therapeutic Community, with 14 adolescents, and a residential system, which will be based in the municipality of Father Hurtado.
