  1. Dear Father,
    Good to know that Salesians are getting back to the line of mainstream media activity. For years we have remained with the Print Media mostly and are unfamiliar to these trends in New Media. The steps in this news pave the path for better work with the media from the perspective of facts and as Salesians, that of truth.
