next April 18, 2019 marks the anniversary of 150 years since the founding of the Association of Mary Help of Christians wanted by don Bosco to defend the faith of the people, radiating into the world the devotion to Jesus Eucharist and the devotion to the Virgin, invoked under the title of Help of Christians.
Precisely on the occasion of the 150th anniversary, we thought it would be nice and important to know one another a bit more, to exchange experiences of life and journeys; to know to whom each group is addressed, how it lives and in which direction it directs its apostolate.
To know ourselves to be a great family under the mantle of Mary, to know one another to support us, to know us in order to remind us that wherever we are in the world - today and in the future - it is the centrality of the relationship with Jesus, which cannot exist without the guidance of Mary, that supports our journey and gathers us together. To recognize that we all want to testimony that faith is a gift which gives meaning and fullness to life and answers to the most profound questions in man.
Hence the meaning of the short questionnaire that you will find at the following link QuestionarioENG: TO GET TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER !!!. It would be nice it could be disseminated and compiled by all local Adma groups:
For this we ask your invaluable contribution in:
• spreading the weblink to the questionnaire within your area of competence;
• becoming promoters of this initiative and support it by contacting groups and asking them to devote some time to its compilation.
We would like to collect the answers and the material by 31st March 2019 to work on it and present it as a "gift" and a result of the association's path during the upcoming World Congress of Mary Help of Christians, to be held, as you may know, in Argentina, Buenos Aires in November 2019.
We thank you in advance for your help in spreading this initiative, we are sure that this work will be precious for ADMA progress for the next 150 years !!!
United in prayer,
Renato Valera, Don Pierluigi Cameroni and all the council of ADMA Primaria - Valdocco
