Resources for Our Salesian Presences

Message of the Provincial 06.10.21

Dear Confreres,

This week, a good number of confreres are on retreat in Tampa or Stony Point. We welcome Fr. Henry Bonetti back to the province from Korea, and we welcome Fr. Joe Thannikal, originally from the Kolkata province, now stationed in Berkeley, CA.

The pandemic may have caused some activities to slow down or even stop, but the province delegates and their teams have used this time well to develop resources for our Salesian presences. A few of the resources are still in the final stages of editing. For copies of any of these resources, please email or call the province leader responsible for that department.
