Featured: Letter of Don Rua

Accompanying the first four Salesians on their expedition to the United States was a handwritten letter by Don Michele (Michael) Rua, Don Bosco's first successor.  Don Rua's letter was short, but within it contains a very important mandate accompanied by his paternal blessings.  He concludes with a reminder to his Salesian sons to always remain united with their brother Salesians all over the world in prayer.  Don Rua's letter is made available below.  To read the history of our province, visit www.donboscowest.org/province/history.
