Cumbayá, Ecuador - October 2023 - From 20th to 22nd October at the Spirituality Centre "María Auxiliadora" in Cumbayá, the 12th National Congress of ADMA took place. The event was centred on the theme "Eucharistic Jesus gives us Mary as mother and teacher", and was led by Fr. Alejandro Guevara SDB, ADMA's World Spiritual Animator. The aim of the three-day meeting was to strengthen the fraternity and the Eucharistic and Marian spirituality of this branch of the Salesian Family, in order to renew its evangelizing and pastoral commitment in the places where it is present, as a living witness in the mission. In Ecuador, ADMA is present in 8 regions, with 27 centres and a total of 845 members. The opening ceremony was attended also by Fr. Marcelo Farfán, Superior of the Salesian Province of Ecuador (ECU), who underlined how ADMA is an essential movement in the spirituality of the Congregation and the Salesian Family. During his speech, Fr. Alejandro Guevara stressed the importance of authentic devotion and the propagation of devotion to Mary Help of Christians at a local level: "I believe that these days of meeting should be an invitation to share life with one another as brothers and sisters and to look at our reality with Mary's eyes".
