Definition: The 26th General Chapter requested that "the Rector Major with his Council define the nature and the objectives of the Congregationís intervention on behalf of a renewed Salesian presence in Europe"(CG26, 111). Already in his closing address at GC26 the Rector Major offered some initial explanations and guidelines in this regard; subsequently other steps were taken.

Description:
The motivations for Project Europe included a direct request to GC26 by Pope Benedict XVI to help revitalise the faith in Europe. The Rector Major and his Council subsequently defined the nature and objectives of the Congregation's intervention on behalf of a renewed Salesian presence in Europe. The areas of the Project were identified in the Meeting of the European Provincials. They indicate the three priority choices of the Project and regard: the re-vitalisation from within of the Salesian presence, the re-location and re-structuring of the presences, the re-enforcing of the more needy Provinces with Salesian personnel. The interventions of the Project refer to three different levels: the Rector Major and the General Council, the Regions, the Provinces.

 

Context (examples of use):
"The point was made that it was necessary that Project Europe should be better known by the whole Congregation. It should be remembered, in  fact, that this is not Project on behalf of Europe, but of a commitment in which Europe has its specific role and in which, however, all the Provinces of the Congregation are involved". (Rome 16 December 2010, Fr Cereda Prot.10/1036

Term type ('EntryTerm' if no other applies)
(1) (2)   
[Initialisms like AGC are regarded as acronyms; a term like 'Bro.' is an abbreviation; an example of short form instead would be the main part of a very long book title (most of DB's book titles! 'Giovane Provveduto' is a short form). A loan term is not translated whereas a calque is. A blend is where two (or more) morphemes or 'word' parts have been combined to form a single term, as in the case of 'austraLasia'. Choose variant when there exists at least one other common form of the term. ]

[Archaic refers to terms that have fallen out of regular use. Deprecated indicates official disapproval or if not disapproval, official abandonment at least. A neologism is a term that has come into play relatively recently - say, since Vatican II, but the time frame can be flexible.]

Definition

Synonyms
  

 


Geographical/Regional usage
  
[Certain terms are common in restricted parts of the Congregation. We have one 'prior' but only in INB; in some parts of Asia the Salesian community is called a 'convent', but not elsewhere]
