IX International Congress of Mary Help of Christians

At the recent Days of Spirituality of the Salesian Family, the programme for the 9th International Congress of Mary Help of Christians was presented. It is organized by us, the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA), and addressed to all the groups of the Salesian Family. It will be held in Fatima from 29th August to 1st September, 2024.

Fr. Antonio Marcelino SDB, a Salesian from Portugal and General Coordinator for the Congress, and Giovanni Scavino, ADMA’s World Councilor, have enthusiastically invited the whole Salesian Family to prepare for this special event of thanksgiving and entrustment to Mary.

The Congress will be held in the ‘Paul VI congress hall’ at the Shrine of Fatima, Portugal, an inspiring Marian Shrine, where the Virgin Mary appeared to three young shepherd children in 1917. It invites the whole world to prayer and penance.

The title chosen for this event is ‘I will give you the teacher,’ recalling Don Bosco’s dream at the age of 9, whose 200th anniversary will be celebrated in 2024. It is a dream that was deeply imprinted in Don Bosco’s heart and guided him throughout his life. The desire is to recognize in Mary Help of Christians, more and more, the Teacher who accompanies and guides the whole Salesian Family to Jesus and to the young people most in need.

In the coming months, more information will be posted on the website dedicated to the Congress:

We entrust in prayer, the preparation and realization of this great event.
