From 22nd to 25th November 2023, the meeting of the Provincial Delegates of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) and the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA) with the Representatives of the other groups of the Salesian Family of the Central and Northern European Region took place in Krakow, followed by the celebrations in the different regions of the Salesian World in October and November.

The participants came from the Provinces of Poland, Germany, North Belgium and Holland, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Malta. The groups present were SDB, FMA, Salesian Cooperators (ASSCC), Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA), Past Pupils of Don Bosco (ExA-DB) and Past Pupils of the FMA (ExA-FMA), Volunteers of Don Bosco (VDB), Community of the Mission of Don Bosco (CMB) and the Contemplative Fraternity of Mary of Nazareth (FCMN).

Walking together as Salesian Family’ was the theme of the meeting, as in the other regions of the Congregation. The reflection on the situation of the Salesian Family in the Region, on the problems faced and the sharing of many good practices that are being implemented, indicated some challenges and specified some conclusions for the journey in the coming years.

The combination of reflections and communications, together with moments of prayer and family togetherness led to a valuable experience of communion and spirituality among all the participants. They were days that nourished the service of animation and accompaniment to be carried out in an increasingly synodal manner, days in which to breathe and live the precious gift of the Salesian Family that the Holy Spirit, through Don Bosco, has given to the Church for the benefit of the young and the people.
