10/3/2016 - Philippines - The Rector Major in the Southern Province of the Philippines

 (ANS – Cebu City) – On 9 March 2016, during his maiden visit to the Southern Province of the Philippines Province (FIS), the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, SDB first set foot in the island of Negros to visit the Don Bosco Technical Institute in Victorias. This was the first Salesian educational institution founded in 1951. His secretary, Fr Horacio López and Fr Godofredo Atienza, FIS Provincial, accompanied him as the Salesians, their Lay Mission Partners and young people welcomed him with great joy.

Fr Á.F. Artime left Negros Occidental in the afternoon and arrived in Cebu after %.00 p.m. He was met by well-wishers and brought to Don Bosco Formation Centre in Lawaan, Talisay City. He was warmly welcomed by the Community, which included the Salesian Cooperators. The Brass Band played at his entrance.

In his “Good Night,” he thanked everyone for the fraternal welcome. He confided that his heart beats strongly out of the need to say that Salesian Family has a special gift, the Salesian Charism, which all share. “We call this the family spirit which we should never lose because it comes from Don Bosco” he said. “It began more than 150 years ago. This reality is not only alive but is moving forward”.

Then he ended by telling the young aspirants and novices that “we have a congregation very much alive in the world. We have a wonderful Salesian Family for which we always give thanks to the Lord.”
