Visit of General Councillor for Youth Ministry

Fr. Fabio Attard, a native of Malta and a member of our Province, visited the Provincial House for a few days rest between his many exhausting trips.

At congregational level he is responsible for the animation of Salesian educative and pastoral activity in its various expressions, seeing that the Salesian priority for youth and the inspiration of the Preventive System is realised in each of them.

After Ireland he travelled to South Africa to continue his work there supporting Salesian youth initiatives in that Province.

Fr Fabio is no stranger to Ireland as he did much of his studies and training in this country. While in Ireland Fr. Fabio was a guest of the community in Crumlin and renewed his acquaintance with Dubli. In the the company of his old friend and the ‘Guardian Angel of the Maltese confreres who studied in Ireland, Mary Hopkins, he enjoyed a fruitful day at Glendalough.

We wish him well in his work and assure him of a welcome always in this country.
