Lisbon, Portugal - March 2023 – On 24th to 26th of March, the group of the world leaders of the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA) and the ADMA Primary group from Valdocco (Turin) met the members of the team in charge of preparing the International Congress of Mary Help of Christians, which will take place at Fatima in 2024.

The aim was to see to the preparation of the Congress by getting to know the places of the congress. Fr. Alejandro Guevara SDB, ADMA’s World Spiritual Animator, Sr. Lucrecia Uribe, FMA World Delegate, and the members of the ADMA Primary of Valdocco - Renato Valera, Giovanni Scavino, Barbara Mario, Barbara Rosa Clot, Elisabetta Seno and Francesca Cederle - gathered in Lisbon at the headquarters of the Salesian Province of Portugal (POR).

At the end of the meeting, Fr. Guevara thanked them for their support and the opportunity to meet the Provincial, Fr. José Aníbal Mendonça, the Provincial Vicar, Fr. João Chaves and Fr. António Marcelino from the team preparing the congress. “These are days of fraternity, of preparation, of knowledge, accompanied at all times by the hand of Mary. I believe we are on the right track to prepare a beautiful experience of faith, prayer and encounter for all members of the Salesian Family,” he said. The International Congress of Mary Help of Christians, a Marian event, that takes place every four years, will see the participation of the Rector Major and will take place from 29th August to 1st September 2024 in Fatima. The title chosen for this event will be “I will give you the teacher”, recalling Don Bosco’s dream, when he was nine (1824) whose 200th anniversary will be celebrated in 2024.
