“All baptized Catholics of at least 18 years of age can apply for membership in the Association. Membership implies the commitment to live what is prescribed by art.4 of the present regulations and regular participation in the Association’s meetings in a spirit of solidarity and belonging.”

As we have already seen in Article 4, membership of the Association implies following commitments, having as privileged places the family, the living ambience, the work environment and friendship:

  • to value the participation in liturgical life, especially in the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, in the practice of personal Christian life;

  • to live and spread the devotion to Mary Help of Christians, according to Don Bosco's spirit, in particular in the Salesian Family;

  • to renew, strengthen and live the practices of popular piety: the commemoration of the 24th of the month, the Holy Rosary, the novena in preparation for the feast of Mary Help of Christians, pilgrimages to Marian shrines etc.;

  • to imitate Mary by cultivating in one's own family a Christian environment of welcome and solidarity;

  • to practise, through prayer and action, concern for the poorest young people and people in need;

  • to pray for and support lay, religious and ministerial vocations in the Church, and in particular in the Salesian Family;

  • to live the spirituality of daily life with evangelical attitudes, in particular with thanksgiving to God for the wonders He continually performs and with fidelity to Him even in the hour of difficulty and of the Cross, following the example of Mary.

The Association is sustained by the commitment of each member: each one is called upon to participate with a spirit of communion and collaboration in the meetings and in the various activities, and to offer his or her availability for the commitments to which he or she is called.

The vocation to be part of ADMA requires a free and motivated response, convinced under the action of the Holy Spirit and with the assistance of Mary Help of Christians, with the accompaniment of the group leaders.

It is in fact a choice of life which requires a careful discernment and a constant commitment to the service of the Church in the Salesian spirit and mission.

Andrea and Maria Adele Damiani
