Salesian Family to meet in Annecy May 8 for celebration of St Francis de Sales’ 450th Birthday

The Visitation Sisters are not the only heirs of the spirit of St. Francis de Sales. Over the centuries new religious families have emerged in the Church: laity associations or priests, united in this particular way of living the Gospel. Meeting them at Thorens-Glière (birthplace of François de Sales) on the occasion of his four hundred and fiftieth anniversary is an event!

On Monday, May 8, in Thorens-Glières, Salesian families will meet for a great family reunion: the Visitation monasteries, Salesian families and institutes, missionaries, Oblates, priests and laity of the different Salesian families, to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the birth of Francis de Sales. A festive day organized by the Commission of the Salesian families of the diocese of Annecy.
