A big and until today unresolved issue is how we can improve our global cooperation. This cooperation across unit borders is one of the important orders for the positive recognition at the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life at the Vatican. Therefore we have established two sub-forums at “Activities” at the ICDS forum called “What is needed?” and “What can be offered“. There your unit can put in requests and/or offers to the whole community. Other units can start to get in contact with you if they have material to the requests, ideas for results or something else.

It is a starting point to improve and deepen our awareness about the ICDS and we want to invite you to this activity. We have already one offer there, which is waiting for a request. Don’t hesitate to use this equipment for the improvement of our community.

pdf-js_2016-12-06_10-12-54Very belated we got the message of the 25th Anniversary of the Italian Lay Salvatorians. They celebrated on 11 OCT 16, the traditional Salvatorian Feastday of the Mother of the Savior.  Several members of the three branches of the Salvatorian Family gathered at Monte Tabor outside of Rome. Fr. Raúl Gómez Ruiz, Vicar General, represented the Generalate and the Motherhouse community. The celebration included the Eucharist presided by Most Rev. Augusto Lojudice, Auxiliary Bishop of Rome, followed by a festive lunch. Congratulations and ad multos annos!


Salvatorian presence in Brazil: priests and brothers 120 years; Sisters 80 years; Lay-Salvatorians 30 years. Mission is our passion! We praise and give thanks to God the Savior for the value of the first missionaries and the first missionaries who initiated the Salvatorian Mission in Brazil.

Presença Salvatoriana no Brasil: Padres 120 anos, Irmãs 80 anos, leigos/as 30 anos. A Missão é nossa Paixão! Louvamos e agradecemos a Deus Salvador pela coragem das primeiras Missionárias e dos primeiros missionários que iniciaram a missão Salvatoriana no Brasil.


20161112_091100_800_x_600Thirteen members of the Lay Salvatorians of Austria met for a retreat day with following topics:

  • St. Martin of Tours – 1700 years anniversary – a short biography and report from a visitation of Tours (FR)
  • “When it is enough?” – Thoughts and discussion about the self-indulgence of today, which strategies could we use, to get out of the rat race.
  • “Time to thank” – for what do want to thank today.

It was a very spiritual event with good thoughts and talks.

img1_1024_x_768On Saturday 19 September 2016 the Laysalvatorians of Austria went for a pilgrimage with the motto “Laudato Si” according to the Encyclica of Pope Francis. Additionally, he recently incorporated the integrity of creation as the 8th work of mercy and proclaimed Sept 1 as the Creation’s World Day of prayer.

Together we went by train to a village located at the Danube River somewhere north-west of Vienna, our starting point. In front of the local church (unfortunately it was closed) we held the initial spiritual momentum with some statements from the encyclica and a song. Then we started our walk into the Wienerwald towards the destination of our pilgrimage, the Lourdes Cave of Maria Gugging. The first part of our path was steep up a hill through the wood but afterwards the path went over fields and through forested areas sometimes uphill sometimes downhill but not as steep as at the beginning. We made two stops for contemplation on the way. The final prayer we held at the Lourdes Cave. There our personal concerns and requests were offered to the Lord and Mother Mary in quietness and prayer. A public bus brought us back to the meeting point of the morning. It was a good day with many interesting interchanges of ideas, common prayer and lived Salvatorian community.
