With 26 brothers attending the second session (21 had attended the first session) of the annual meeting of practical trainees and student brothers, held at Don Bosco Provincial House, Bangalore on July 18th and 19th, it was a record full attendance. The days were of serious reflection and learning on self-development and time management as well as on unadulterated and wholesome Salesian materials based on Salesian Constitutions and the Ratio. Besides Mrs Edwina, the external resource person, the provincial team consisting of Fr Provincial, the Vice-Provincial and the Provincial Economer interacted with the young confreres. They endeavoured not only to instill Salesian values, but also to elicit our views and suggestions based on our experiences in the communities. In all, the meeting was well prepared, beneficial for our own growth and for our ministry to the young.
