Juan Edmundo Vecchi – “Letter of the Rector Major” in “Acts of the General Council of the salesian society of St John Bosco”

In 1998, all provinces were actively involved in preparing and conducting Provincial Chapters, a grace bestowed upon all ninety-one circumscriptions. These events were anticipated to profoundly impact the life of the entire Congregation. Rather than viewing these Chapters as mere legal procedures or deliberative gatherings, they were seen as experiences, celebrations, and opportunities to reignite the communion that binds us in our religious dedication and our mission to young people.
