The Salesian Family Congress of South Asia launched their news website last month offering quick and easy access to essential information on the upcoming Salesian Family Congress. The website is also part of the organisation's ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and availability of information to Salesian Family members of South Asia.
An assembly of members from the 11 groups present in South Asia, The Salesian Family Congress is a part of the concluding celebration of the bicentenary of Don Bosco's birth which will be held from September 26 to 28 at Don Bosco Park Circus in Kolkata in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal.
The Congress strives to forge stronger bonds of communion in the Salesian Family at all levels and to multiply the force of the members of the Salesian Family to continue the mission of Don Bosco in a visible manner and to make significant impact.
There are some 41000 members of the Salesian Family in South Asia.
In the past the Co-operators and Past Pupils have been holding their Congress periodically. The whole Salesian Family comes together for a Congress only in 2015, the Bi-Centenary Year of the birth of Don Bosco.
