During the first week of April 2018, Salesians in Ireland have the great privileged of being able to share their life and work with Fr Filiberto González, the General Councillor for Social Communication.
After his arrival in Ireland, on Tuesday, 3rd April 2018, Fr Filiberto had an opportunity to meet with Fr Eunan McDonnell, Provincial of Salesians Ireland. It was a very opportune time to share and discuss some of the topics regarding the present situation and the future plans of the Salesians in Ireland.
Wednesday was mainly dedicated to meeting with the younger generation of the Salesians. Fr Filiberto guided us through a reflection on communication and shared with us his experience and knowledge. It was also a time to reflect and share our own thoughts and experiences regarding the topic.
The third day of Fr Filiberto’s visit was dedicated to visit some of the projects in collaboration with Fr Lukasz Nawrat, Delegate for Social Communication in Ireland. Together we visited Radio Maria Ireland, where we meet with Mr Joy Joyson, who gave us a presentation of the work done by Radio Maria in Ireland. After that, we travelled to meet Ms Cini John at Shalom World TV Ireland. It was a time for sharing of experiences and considering the possibilities of deeper collaboration in the service of the God and the Church.
Friday, 6th April, the last day of Fr Filiberto’s visit was dedicated to the Salesian Bulletin and to concluding the visit. During those days, Fr Filiberto also had an opportunity to meet with the confreres of different communities around Ireland in the spirit of fraternity and prayer.
We would like to thank Fr Filiberto González for this visit and for sharing his knowledge and wisdom of communication with us.
