Forming the Formator Workshop:
The Forming the Formator Workshop is a gathering of 3 provinces, and the fruit of a collaboration among their leadership to create a dedicated time to train the Salesian Cooperators’ Delegates, Formators, and Coordinators and to empower them to form and animate their Centers. This workshop is a way to assure effective formation in our Salesian Cooperator Centers and Association, which requires an integral formation, initial and ongoing, of its members.
The principle goal of this formation is
in the Spirit of Don Bosco
by internalizing and living the new
Project of Apostolic Life.
Form – Inform – Transform
