The gathering had members from Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA), Missionary Sisters of Mary help of Christians (MSMHC), the Visitation Sisters of Don Bosco (VSDB), the Co-operators and Past Pupils.

Father Angel informed the gathering that there are 32 such groups in the world that go to make up the Salesian Family. He said that each group is different and distinct. The uniqueness of each group is its identity and that must be maintained. He urged the members to be practitioners of the charism of Don Bosco in their own settings. Likening the Salesian charism to a big river, he said each group is a rivulet that joins the big river and takes the charism far and wide.

The Rector Major also stressed that 'openness should be an inherent trait of the Salesian Family'. The openness must be seen in our attitude to other cultures and religions. Our schools, he said, must cater also to members of other faiths. He further urged the Salesian Family to make visible the love we as Salesian family members have for the young and the poor.
