(ANS – São Paulo, Brazil – October 23) – The American meeting (for both continents) on youth ministry and missionary animation took place in São Paulo, October 17-22. It was led by Fr. Fabio Attard, general councilor for youth ministry, Fr. Guillermo Basañes, general councilor for the missions, and Fr. Natale Vitali, councilor for the America South Cone Region and was attended by 48 Salesians—delegates of youth ministry, vocations, and missionary animation of the various provinces of the Americas, including Fr. Abe Feliciano and Fr. Tom Brennan from the New Rochelle Province.
The work focused on assessments and projects for the next six years, the study of the delegate manual for mission animation, in-depth study of the Youth Synod, including its working document, final document, and the apostolic exhortation Christus Vivit. Projects, analyses, and projections for missionary work in all the places where the Salesians are present were studied and discussed.
