Egidio Viganò – “Letter of the Rector Major” in “Acts of the General Council of the salesian society of St John Bosco”

The Rector Major extends greetings from himself and the members of the new General Council. They are soon to convene for a thorough examination of the guidelines established by GC23 and to formulate an animation and governance program aimed at enhancing their service to the Provinces over the next six years.
