Without the others we cannot be ourselves10 March 2022
Association of Salesian Women
Association of Salesian Women: Women of the Church at the Heart of the World and Women of the World at the Heart of the Church and the Salesian Family.
As a group of lay and Salesian women, we enthusiastically promote, with all the means at our disposal, an integral project for a new society through women's leadership and vocational, social and Christian voluntary work, and by virtue of a special charisma, we extend our apostolate to the sick.
The Holy Spirit inspired our Founder, Father Miguel González sdb, to call upon lay women to respond to the baptismal commitment by giving of themselves in the service of others in all our Centres where we provide health, education and job training services, as instruments to achieve human promotion and the new evangelisation of those most in need.
We are called to conquer holiness in concrete action and works, as women in the world, with different forms of life in the secular realities of family, marriage, work, social, university and business life, experiencing the love of God and living in communion with the Holy Spirit by organising our lives in the service of Christ in those most in need.
We recognise Mary as our Mother Help of Christians, our inspiration and role model, our guide and faithful companion in mission.
Sowers of hope in the world, entrepreneurs of the Kingdom of God among the lay faithful, senders of new signals among modern women. As expressed in our promise: we are women of the Church in the heart of the world and women of the world in the heart of the Church and the Salesian Family.
