Conclusion de la session (P. Turabanye)

The days were very beneficial as in nourishing the understanding of the Salesian youth ministry. So many important things were shared, these included: the “Letter from Rome” written by Don Bosco. This challenged us much particularly following our aspirancy experiences and our near future expectations. We also looked at the models of Salesian youth ministry in Rwanda and elsewhere, and many other things in line with the theme. The seminar was really very useful for us who need to grow in the understanding of the Salesian works and in the ways of doing things. We therefore would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to : first the provincial council and the provincial formation commission for taking the initiative to enrich our formation with the seminar. Then secondly, to Father Jean Pierre Turabanye and Father Augustin-César HABANABAKIZE for giving their time and energy to facilitate us throughout the session. We would also like to thank the pre-novitiate director Father Sinaize Bigirimana, for making sure everything was conducted the way it was planned. And finally to all who were supportive in one way or the other without forgetting  ourselves, the pre-novices for the cooperation and attention during the days of seminar. God bless us all.
