Turin – From 27 to 29 September, the traditional missionary appointment with Harambée will take place in Turin , which this year will be enriched by an important anniversary: the 150th missionary expedition. In fact, 36 Salesians and 13 Daughters of Mary Help of Christians will receive the missionary cross during the celebration on Sunday 29 September in the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians, as Ans agency informs. Don Bosco’s missionary dream still continues, after 150 years. 9,523 missionaries were sent in 150 expeditions. “We must respond generously to the Lord: if today the Salesian charism lives in 134 nations, it is due to confreres like these who have brought the Gospel into the world by educating the young” said the Rector Major of the Salesians, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime.
