Saturday was the final day of the Rector Major's visit to the GBR Province.

In the morning, he spent time with the communities of Cowley, Chertsey, Farnbroough and Batterse. After Mass, he met Mrs Maureen Devereux, mother of Sean Devereux, the Salesian missionary volunteer and aid worker who was killed in Somali in 1993.

Sacred Heart church in Battersea was the setting for Don Ángel's last Mass here, and the church was packed.

A wonderful cake was shared as part of the joyful celebrations after Mass, and many parishioners and other visitors had a chance to chat to the Rector Major.

The Rector Major arrived safely back in Rome in the evening, to continue his duties. It was a delight to welcome him to our Province, and to benefit from his unique and inspiring animation of our works and all of our Salesian Family.


Thank you, and God bless you, Don Ángel!
