Support parents of boys and girls in our works in their educational responsibility, by means of parents associations,, school for parents, etc. with a practical and systematic formation and sharing on educational topics.
In each Salesian presence strengthen the educative and pastoral community, giving particular attention to a family atmosphere, to the most frequent participation possible and to sharing …so that the Salesian presence becomes a home for the young and a support to the families involved.
To involve families in the journey of education and evangelisation which we offer and animate amongst the young, by means of initiatives like parent-son/daughter encounters, family catechesis, involving parents in leadership of SYM groups, celerbations and other meetings together, Christian family communities as a reference point for the journey of faith which we offer to young people, etc.
Encouraging, readying and accompanying our lay people to promote and defend the rights of the family in society, in the face of laws and situations which seek to destroy them.
Deepening understanding of the sense of being Salesian Family amongst the different groups in the same zone by making known and by sharing the “Common identity card” and the “Common Mission Statement” and by putting in place the “SF Advisory Council” at various levels.
