Salesian Youth Ministry Department – Salesian youth ministry animation structures

The animation and coordination of pastoral work are carried out on different levels: local,  provincial, interprovincial and international. In drawing up the pastoral plan which gives details of its intended commitments, the EPC needs to select the necessary means and determine the concrete steps to be taken to avoid going ahead without due, thoughtful consideration. We are  suggesting a practical method for drawing up the SEPP.
